Oh I do love to be beside the seaside

I was commissioned to make a 70th birthday card for a friend's sister who loves the seaside.I can't remember where the scalloped circles with beach huts came from, but they were just right for what I wanted to do. I stamped and embossed the words of the song which were part of a set by rubbadubbado, as was the deckchair stamp I used for the inside of the bottom of the easel. Other bits and pieces were from stash

This is for:

Double D: let's go to the beach
Friendship 55: maratime
The sisterhood of crafters: anything ocean/beachy
Artsy stamper 20: birthday
Incy wincy: summer colours
Try it on Tuesday (Tuesday taggers): summertime

Your next stamp fun Friday 144: summer days
