Fun in the sun beach colours

This weeks card for c2cu challenge is beach colours and I have kept the colours very pastel to get a dreamy effect.
The backing sheet has been embossed using a crafts too folder, the boat and anchor are from marianne dies. I have used pastels to colour the background and stickles to enhance the embossing and the sea. 
I have gone over all the background with titanium white pastel to subdue the colours.
Have fun

Fun in the sun BBQ invite

This is the third week of the second month of c2cu challenge and for my card of fun in the sun I have created a BBQ invite.
This invite to a BBQ is bright and summery, the border is done with one inch squares of bright spotty paper from a paper block, with a mirror square in the centre. 
The letters are cut out in a bright blue to match the striped apron. 
The utensils are made from a marianne die and I altered the top of the fish slice by cutting the rounded top off and replacing it with a straight piece of card.
A very easy card to do, bright and colourful. I would love to receive this invite.
