Off to the seaside ................

For this card I have gone for a male themed card.  

I have used various Delicious Doodles images - Sunset at SeaDeckchair, Ice-cream Sundae and Driftwood Border.  I have coloured all the images in with my Promarkers.  I have fussy cut around the driftwood border, inked with Tim Holtz's Gathered Twigs distress ink and then rubbed over my gold metallic Pan Pastel over the sand in the picture, around the driftwood frame and the dotty card (made with a large dotty Embossalicious embossing folder).

The backing papers I have used are from the paper pad called "The Seaside" by Crafty Individuals.  I love this paper pad.

I have finished the card off with some Marianne Designs die-cut shells and anchor, 3D tag sticker and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
