Avery Elle Spring 2017 Release Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the Avery Elle Spring 2017 Release Blog Hop.  You should’ve hopped here from Karolyn’s blog but if you’re lost and want to start at the beginning then you need to pop on over to the Avery Elle blog.
I am thrilled to be sharing a couple of cards today made using Shine Bright from the release.  This is another of my own designs and I’m so pleased with how it turned out – I love anything to do with the ocean.
I kept the first card very simple as I wanted to keep the lighthouse as a standalone focal point.  The Rocky Shores dies from the last release are a perfect partner for this set and together they create a great shoreline landscape.

For the second card I created a Distress Ink blended background for my lighthouse to sit in front of.  This set is also ideal for using with the Chibi-tronics kits too!
