Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 40: summer at the beach

I am excited and privileged to be joining the design team for Fan-tastic Tuesday.

This is my first design team creation, which is for Fan-tastic Tuesday 40: at the beach. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team - and we would love to see you joining in the challenge.

I have used Bugaboo Stamps 'beach border' and 'crab boat', kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum  noir pens.

The background paper is DCWV from their summer pack from long ago. The beach hut and bunting are part of a prize from Flourish with a bling for winning a challenge on Emerald Faeries (I had $15 to spend and got a lovely lot of goodies - you'll see more of them in due time). It's a pity that you can't see the lovely shine on the banner and beach hut. The little flip flops are some I've had for a long, long time.
