Saturated Canary challenge 21- Bling it out!!!!

Gingham yellow from Craft the Year Away
Afternoon Peeps!!
Its that time of the week again when the canaries over on the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog set you into another awesome challenge (..squee! I have loved the last 3 saturated canary challenges but this one...oooooh!!!) and this week we want you to...
Bling It Out!!!!
super yey!! what crafty peep does not love a bit of bling and sparkly???!!!!! I went for bling in the form of yummy glitter!! I used my copic spicas on her bikini and my glitter for some sea. The beach ball and bucket are made with a pearlescent red card too so bling,bling,bling baby!!!! :)

The card itself is a biggy, its a 7.5x7.5 inch one and its pearlescent too, hard to see in piccy :( I made the cloud background on it with my faded jeans distress ink.

The Funky Hand papers are just perfect because they remind me of deck chair fabric and each towels!!! and the yellow is my hope that the UK will see a summer soon.......he he he!!!

The little bucket and beach ball are a Hello Kitty sizzix die. I tied some twine around the bucket handle. The sentiment is pooter printed onto some MFT flag stix die cuts. I LOVE my flag stix!! they are such a yummy die for just making something look real neat! I wrapped a bit of twine around the sentiment and added a little starfish charm to it too.The doily was sitting on my crafty desk (...yeah..all who know me well will know everything sits on my craft desk....!!!)so it kinda got splonked on there too!!!

The funniest thing about making this card was of course my little Mo. He sat happily watching me colour in on sunday and then he said "mamma, do you know that girl must have steel swimmy bottoms on because that shark is going to bite her butt"....oh my did I giggle!!!!!

So, Please pop on over to the Saturated Canary Challenge blog and see what my awesomely talented teamies have made to inspire you along your way!!!
Thank you so much for popping in on me!
