Florence Catching Some Rays

Good evening my fellow bloggers,
I hope everyone had a good weekend and managed to find plenty of crafting time. So pleased blogger is back up and running felt really lost without it. Anyway, I managed to get some more sample cards done for the Lincoln show and thought I would share this card with you using the very cool Florence from Kraftin Kimmie. The DP's are MME and and Doodlebug teamed with Coredinations.
I created this card for a class I ran last week which was how to use Nestabilities in a different way. For this card I used the negative frame created instead of the positive shape. This was then raised on pads to create 2 recessed panels, a little distressing on the bunting and sand dunes to give it texture and hey presto! As normal I used my trusty Promarkers to colour Florence and the shells.
I have just sent this card to my friends daughter who is in hospital at the mo after a big op so I would like to send her a huge hug and can't wait to see her back home.

I am entering Florence into the following challenges:
