Bonnes Vacances

Mojo409; Sparkle; Fun in the sun

What else is a summer holiday but clear blue skies, pristine sand and sparkling sea?
I just made this for our French teacher who is off to Fiji for a holiday in a week's time - remember it's the middle of our NZ winter!  And because there was a sparkle challenge in the mix, I couldn't resist...

Sparkly papers torn and layered (to represent sea, sand and sky).  A digi-stamp coloured with Reno pens, matted in dark blue. Horizontal strip is under the topper instead of on top but the wavy postmark continues the line.   Postmark stamps and a flower in her hair with pearl centre.  Diecut rounded shells (from Coffee paper) and star-fish (manila) attached with dimensional foam.  Sentiment is my handwriting scanned & e-cut.

Now doesn't that make you want to go on a tropical holiday?  I'm so envious, I look out the window today and it is dull grey and pouring with rain!

Digi-stamp: Scrappers Delight
Stamp: (Hampton Art)
Die-cuts: Cuttlebug
E-Cut: Brother Scan'n'Cut
