Beautiful Day 'Wave' card

Hi there friends, bit cooler today here after the
heatwave we had last week. 
 
Glad to say our conservatory roof is almost
finished now and the rain stayed away. 
Although it did say 43c at one point in there,
our poor roofer!
 
Right onto my card, another for this week's
'Less is More' challenge which is a sketch.
As soon as I saw it I thought sea/wave...so
went with that idea. Sketch below card btw.
 
I water coloured through a stencil onto some 
watercolour card. Then I cut it to fit the gap
between my die-cut pieces of Linen card. 
 
I fiddled around with my 'wave' like dies
and cut the stamped sentiment out with 
them. Just had to add a line of glamour 
 dust of course to the bottom of the
 wording too.
A sprinkling of sequins and job done!
Enjoy your weekend whatever you have
 planned ;)....ours involves swimming again.
 
Er and no I haven't done any more painting 
of my craft room...been too bloomin' hot!

This is so gorgeous, Viv! The watercolouring is perfect, just like cool waves or ripples in a lake, and the sentiment looks beautiful on the shaped panel over the top. Wonderful card and a great take on the sketch! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)
