oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

Morning, got you all singing now, haven't I? lol 
I am bursting with exciting news, 2 bits of news actually but I can't tell yet! You will just have to stay tuned in the coming days!!
Anyway onto my 2nd card for today, and this one is for the MDUC, I had been colouring these little cuties in and when I saw what the challenge was this week I knew these would be perfect. I have made a step card, I used the off cuts from the magnolia swirly lace die to make the waves at the front of the card. I saw this in the magnolia ink mag and thought what a fab idea. I painted the pearl and the inside of the oyster shell with iridescent medium and it really does look like mother of pearl. I am loving these teeny shells that I got from the works, they are just the perfect size!
The colours look really vibrant in the pics, they are much softer irl, but Ive taken tons of pics and they keep coming out the same!

Entering into the following challenges

deep ocean - for a wonderful woman
bunny zoes challenge - ribbon /twine
