Hi, Janja here!

I think it is a good time to show you the card, that I created some time ago. At the bottom I added the word - memories from the new Expressions Plus release.

- CottageCutz dies: Memories Phrase, Wildflowers 1, Wildflowers 4, Wildflowers 5, Lighthouse w/Clouds (seagulls), Under the Sea (rocks)
- white card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm)
- watercolor paper: 4.2 x 4.2" (10,7 x 10,7 cm)
- white and dark gray cardstock
- Distress inks: Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky, Hickory Smoke
- Memento ink Dandelion

To begin, cut out wildflowers, rocks and seagulls with dies. Use white and dark gray cardstock for wildflowers.
Also cut out word memories from white cardstock.

Distress white cutouts with Distress inks. Glue them together with gray cutouts, so that they are partially overlapped. Apply white and yellow pearl dots.

Draw the sea and the sky on the watercolor paper with Distress inks. Once the paper is dry, trim it to the correct size.

To complete the card, mount all the elements as shown on white card base with a wooden embossed finish.

Hi, Janja! What a beautiful beach scene on your lovely card. The use of the Under The Sea die to create the rocks is clever! Great card, Janja!
