Jan SB Post #5

In this ScrapBurst post we have both layouts and cards to share.  I hope you'll enjoy the variety in each challenge as we continue to see more interpretations.  Thanks to everyone who has entered so far, there are some wonderful examples.
Joys of Summer by Di Corbitt
This is such a gorgeous photo, and really makes the layout. Di's misting of the background has come up a treat, and the distressed paper strips have added great effects. A bit of stippling/masking has helped define the sandy beach. Well done.
For You by Zan Boyle
This card is in shades of plum, with soft toned bunting, separated by the cutest little flower buttons. Layering, more embossed handmade papers and a single tag for the sentiment. A card for anyone, anytime. Thanks Zan.
Our Close ECHIDNA Encounter by Di Corbitt
Fancy having this little fellow wander into your back yard?! Well that's just what happened to Di, I reckon she has done a great job getting this many photos, they can be so fast at scurrying off and digging in. Di has used her distressing, inking and tearing to roughen up the edges of the background and photos. Some extra elements such as the sequins, distressed flower and paper piecing complete the layout. Well done.
Happy Birthday Card by Zan Boyle
This is a great Male/Rustic card. Layered in textures such as the leatherlook and embossed papers. A bit of stamping using texture stamps adds more again, with some embossing using UTEE for even more texture. Inking and distressing the edges gives each element definition. A light touch of colour combines the mix nicely. Well done Zan,

Thanks for looking everyone, and we'll be sharing more soon.
