Meant to be – 2

When I saw that the challenge this week at Passion for Promarkers  was to make a card inspired by a Beatles song –  I just had to take part.   The Beatles’ music was part of my teenage years and I have so many memories from this era.   I chose their song – Things We Said Today – as it reminds me of being on holiday on the Isle of Arran, off the west coast of Scotland , when I was sixteen.   I went there with my parents every year – meeting up with the same people – and just enjoying the sunshine.   I don’t think we used the phrase – chilling out – then, but those were the days!!!


What I used –

LOTV stamp – Meant to Be – coloured with Promarkers

Papers from Nitwits

Dies – heart corner from La La Land and a Spellbinders Decorative oval – with the  edge frantaged with chunky white

Ribbon and lace from my stash      Pearls and heart button from the Ribbon Girl


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges –

Through the Purple Haze Challenge – Anything Goes
