Guest Designer Post for Lacy Sunshine Challenge #37

I was asked a couple of weeks ago to guest design for the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog again and of course I just had to say yes. I love these stamps, especially the flower pot pretties and have an ever growing wishlist as Heather constantly brings out fabulous new digis that I must have!


This fortnight's challenge is Christmas in July, Under The Sea and I was sent this cute Shelby's Holiday Sea Mint digi to work with - isn't she just gorgeous leaning on her giant peppermint, dreaming the day away?! I attempted to make the sea look like the sun was shining through it a bit, with the different shaded streaks - I think it worked!


I wasn't 100% sure what colours to go for, but thought traditional red and green with a touch of blue would work well and I love how this one came out. I used my almost full pack of Nordic Christmas papers from First Edition and these are such soft, pretty papers. 

Thank you so much to Heather, Audrey and the other Lacy Sunshine girls for letting me join you all for this challenge.
