Building sandcastles

For this card I used an offcut of DCWV summer paper along with a snippet of torn paper across the bottom. The main image and the strip across the top with beachballs, buckets and spades and sandcastles were taken from Publisher clipart. I used a couple of snippets of sticky ribbon top and bottom of the strip across the top of the card.

This is another card for Pixie's crafty snippets 33, also Hiding in my craft room 58: super scraps Saturday, Squiggle stamps: stash attack and Waste not Wednesdays 28. And it's also for Just us girls 149: use up those ribbon scraps.
