Nice Big Ice Cream by the sea!

Hello Anice here and today is my turn to give you a little inspiration for this months Get Funky challenge from Paula At the Seaside.

I have to admit coming from the Midlands I didn't get to see much 'seaside' as I was growing up.  You don't get much further from the coast really!! What we did see tended to be pretty grey..Wales wasn't always very sunny!  I resisted using grey papers for my card as I thought that would be a bit horrid so I have created a really simple card with one of the main things I like about the seaside.  Ice cream!!

I used papers,digital images and the sentiment from my craft CD Craft The Year Away.  Those torn pieces of blue card are supposed to represent the sea crashing in onto the beach.... I'll let you decide if that's what it looks like!  I added a little bit of sparkle to my cherry topped ice cream using red skickles on the cherry and a couple of stick on gems on the chocolate scoop!

Here's a closer look..

It's a pretty simple card but to try to make it a little more interesting I layered each section up using different depth sticky pads so in real life it does have a little more depth.  I'll try to show you what I mean with this next photo.
I added the sea/waves to the card with flatter sticky pads and then topped the card off with the ice cream using much thicker pads.

Now, I hope all the cards that the Funky Hand Design Team members have posted here for so far this month have given you some inspiration or ideas for your card making.  I hope my simple card has made you realise that your card doesn't have to be some amazing creation to be welcome to be added to the site and entered into the challenge.  Everyone is welcome whether you are a new crafter just finding your feet or an old hand.

The only rule here on the Get Funky challenge is that you use at least one Funky Hand product on your card entry.  It's not a very big rule as each month I give you a completely free paper in the Funky Freebie section of the downloadable collections on my website www.funkyhand.com just use that, if you don't own any Funky Hand products yet, and you can be in with a chance to win your choice of any of the Funky Hand download collections.

We love seeing your creations and visiting your blogs so don't wait any longer get crafting and join in with our challenge now!
Looking forward to meeting you on your blogs!
