Creative Card crew Challenge #16 "Whatever the Weather"

The challenge this week with the Creative Card Crew has been set by the lovely and very talented Joey and her choice of theme is "Whatever the Weather" so let´s see what you can all create from this inspiring title.

I must admit I did wonder which path I would follow, Joey certainly got me to use my old grey matter hehe.




For my card I decided I would start off with the sky for inspiration and my background scene was created from the Summer section of My Crfat Studio. I then imported the deck chair, towel and beach shoes, something I have never done before, then decided she may need a wee drink so voila she has a glass of margarita to quench her thirst.
I coloured Holly with my Prisma´s then cut her out and popped her up on 3d pads. I have tried to give the impression that she is walking off the beach because those clouds don´t look too promising!

I hope the weather is good to you and the sun shines brightly. -x-
