Abandoned Coral Card!

I was so inspired by the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog this week and their challenge to use one of the new Distress colours, Abandoned Coral, that I simply had to pull out my supplies and make this card!

I added some CTMH washi tape (love!!), which you can see in the image below - it comes in a 3 pack "Carnival Collection" set and some of the enamel 'Flamingo' dots again from CTMH!

Distress Stains were used to colour the background of my card using a piece of watercolour paper, which I spritzed with Perfect Pearls to give it some shine.

I stamped a Tim Holtz Blueprint crab stamp on this Picture My Life journalling card from CTMH in the Surf's Up Collection and then stamped it again on a piece of white cardstock. I coloured the white crab with the Abandoned Coral Distress Marker and then layered it on top of the Surf's Up card with a little shiny gold thread between. I absolutely love the colours in this collection!

Inside, I stamped a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink.

Thanks so much for joining me today! Be sure to pop over to my friend, Sheri Ballantyne's Close To My Heart site  to have a look at all the fun products available, and have an awesome, crafty weekend! (p.s. Happy Mother's Day to all you moms too!)

A new challenge started today so, I hope you link with us again. Leaving you with God's inspiration in Ephesians 3:16-18 which says, "I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ." Hugs always!
