Hello everyone ! Well it's Christmas Eve so I saw a colour challenge in a group I belong to on Facebook so I decided I'd like to participate ! Well what else do I have to do on Christmas Eve right !
This is the colour swatch I had to work with .

As soon as I saw the challenge colours I knew my card was going to be based on  either a nautical or a botanical theme .
I think the stamps in the new set High Tide compliment these colours very well . What do you think ?

I began with a water colour wash using Bermuda bay on very lightly to create my background. The lighthouse  , water and flying birds were stamped with Bermuda Bay . I stamped off Daffodil Delight for the sand but used full strength for the light beam . The water birds , grass and sentiment were stamped using Mint Macaron . Some Bermuda Bay twine adds an accent to this card and then I used a Mint Macaron DSP matt  before adhering it to the Bermuda Bay base . This was so much fun I can't wait to join in more of these challenges ! If you would like to join in these challenges just request to be added to this group .
