See the Beauty All Around with Goldie - "W"ednesday!

Woo Hoo it's "W"ednesday!!!
That means some great inspiration using Wee Stamps and Wild Rose Studio at Magnolia-Licious
I decided to keep with a Summer theme and use the gorgeous Goldie by Wee Stamps. It took a couple of attempts to get this card right, I have half finished cards in other color combinations on my desk but once I found the lighthouse in my drawer of "beach" themed goodies I knew I had to go the soft color theme route.

Card Recipe:
Image - Goldie by Wee Stamps
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - DCWV
Sentiment - DCWV
Lighthouse - Provo Craft
Die Cut - Sizzix
Trim - Multicraft Imports
Mesh Ribbon - Mon Ami Gabby
Shell Buttons - Dress It Up
Shine - Diamond Glaze by Judikins
Embossing Enamel - Iced Ivory by Stampendous

Now with the ocean theme I decided it was the perfect time to do a little "Frantaging" and the Aged Ivory was the perfect color, looks like sparkly sand when heated. I added Diamond Glaze to the bubbles and I'm really pleased with the results. The mesh and trim I picked up at a scrapbook expo in June and the little shell buttons I have had for ages.
After a couple of false starts I really love the end result and hope you will too.
Please pop over to Magnolia-Licious to see what my teammates in team B have to show you, you will be in for a treat I know!

Perfect coloring especially with the bubbles, that is so hard to do and love that you also do the inside of your cards. It always seem more special and finished to me.
