Framelit Latch Card

This card fold is called a Framelit Latch Card and I thought the pattern was great for Shell's water play challenge this week at Come and Get It Challenges. This pattern has been around for a long time but it has been awhile since I have used it.  

I used faux sand for the beach pebbles and Diamond Glaze for the water.  I coloured the rest of the image with my Copic Markers.   I like the beach look that the sand and the Diamond Glaze gave the card.  

Show us your water play card at Come and Get this week.  Are you not tired of making snowman and hearts.   I am waiting for spring.  Actually I have run away from the snow and I am sitting in Arizona right now, not quite thje beach but the next best thing. 


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
