Holiday Snaps

 I have some exciting news 

I have been invited to join the design team at Sparkles Monthly

so on the 15th of each month I will have a lovely new card to show you

 the theme this month is

'use at least three patterned papers'

 here is my take

 I made the photos using die cuts and stamps which were coloured

The patterned papers were cut into squares and all were assembled onto a green background

I added some washi tape (the one at the top says 'welcome to paradise' but it doesn't show up in the photo)

I also die cut some sunglasses to scatter around

So have a look at Sparkles Monthly Challenge

and make your own card to enter

see you there

I am also linking this card with

AAA Birthday 


 I used bright, washi and patterned paper

although my card doesn't say 'birthday' it is intended to be used as such
