Wild seas & warmer climes.......

Believe it or not it's almost June but you wouldn't think it from this pic! My sister, BIL & two great-nieces came down for Bank Holiday and they wanted to go to the beach, so off we trundled on Sunday to Lee-On-Solent beach. Cripes it was breezy! My BIL flew my little niece's kite and boy did it go! We were sitting nursing cups of tea at the Beach Shack and the kids were in the water in their wellies! Why don't kids feel the cold?!!!!

Now, this card is for a lucky lady moving to warmer climes. One of the nurses who works with my hubby is moving to Dubai to work and the Department wanted a card for her. It's a biggun- A4- and incorporates icons for her job, and the place she is going to, hence the nurse's top and the palm trees (well, dates actually!) I've used this top before on the nurse/doctor shaped cards I made a while back. I put a stethescope in the pocket and added a name badge. The background paper has a medical theme but I've had it for ages and can't remenber where I had it from. I cut the trees from textured cardstock and adhered them with foam poads to the front of the card. I then adhered the nurse's top slightly overlapping it. I cut the 'Au Revoir' sentiment from pale blue card shadowed with dark blue then adhered it with foam pads above the other elements. The main sentiment was cut from tectured cardstock and adhered with foam pads in the spaces above and below the centre panel. A smattering of Candi dots completes the card.
