Beauty and the Beach

Good Morning...
The new challenge at 
Summer Fun

The prize for the lucky winner is a £10 gift voucher from our lovely sponsors 
Mary and Andrea at 
Today's card came about almost by accident.  I have just joined in, for the first time, with a card swap event and I was very lucky enough to be partnered with Paola Jofre
the very talented artist behind the gorgeous digi's at 

This adorable beach babe is one of Paola's designs - 'Pheobe'; 
she is gorgeous and is just perfect for this challenge.

I coloured her with Copics and went for a more CAS design, 
 I think she deserves to be the centre of attention!

I used Lawn Fawn and an MFT Die to cut the papers and added a few (only a few ...honest!) embellishments.

I had a fight with the Glossy Accents to make the lenses on her lovely shades',
 (oh yes! and this time I reckon I won!)...

Here we have her, glamorous Pheobe, who I, unfortunately do not resemble in any way, shape or form, except that I do sometimes have the odd glass of something pink!
