To the Beach....




I'm on a roll with summer themed cards, so when I saw that Cute Card Thursday's challenge this week was...At the Beach....I jumped right on it! I used my Ek success punches and my sentiments are both from the papertrey collection " A Day at the Beach". I used Tilda by the Sea and coloured her with the lyras, added some polka dots to her dress with my white gel pen, and used the cloud template to sponge around her!
I know my pictures are not all that clear..I really had a hard time with it as the card is quite long!
