Paper Smooches Guest Designer - Week 4

Hello again!

It's my last week as Paper Smooches January Guest Designer - I've so enjoyed playing with all their gorgeous new stuff! For this week's card I've used some of the new dies: Paint Strokes and Polka Dot Borders:

I used the negative from the large polka dot die to create a stencilled background using some texture paste.  It was just enough to give it a textured background without overpowering the image. Having just come back from the beach, I thought of using the Paint Strokes dies as some waves - the cute little monster is from one of my older PS sets called Little Fella. His 'surfboard' is actually the skateboard from the same set - minus the wheels of course!

Well, that's my Paper Smooches stint over. Why not hop on over to the Paper Smooches Blog and store for some more inspiration?  Kim, thanks so much for asking me to guest design for you - loving all those new products of yours!

Thanks for stopping by!
