A day at the beach...

Howdy folks and welcome to my scheduled post...yep...working!!

Well hasn't the weather been glorious this week...I bet it's pouring down at the weekend when I'm off, that will just be typical!!

So this weeks theme over at Papertake Weekly is "Holidays", that means something that reminds you of the holidays, so that can be travel, beach or I have gone for the beach...if I am on holiday then this is what I would be doing...bliss!!

For my card I have used Little Umbrella which I coloured with my spectrum noirs, the papers are Echo Park - A Perfect Summer which I layered onto bazzill card and doodled around.  The scallops I made using my die-namics wonky scallop die, I added a piece of lace...although you can only see a teeny weeny bit. I made the sun using my sizzlits daisy die(snipped the ends off). I also chalked some clouds in the background...just very faintly, it is a sunny day after all!! I added a sentiment and some gems to finish.
