Thank You

Here is a thank you card I have made using two images from the Polkadoodles Work and Play CD3 that I bought recently.  This digital stamp chap in his deckchair and the lady in her towel I thought would be ideal to use at the seaside.  

For the seaside elements I have used various stamps from the "Seashore Scenes" set by Chocolate Baroque which I have had for some years now.

I have coloured the image and the background with my Graph'it pens.  I didn't have a light enough blue for the sky so I used 7125 (Sky) and 9101 (Cool Grey 1) on my Graph'it blending palette and my blending solution and managed to make a lighter colour.  I have highlighted areas with the white Graph'it pen and the silver glitter shake Graph'it pen.
I have added some elements on the front, inside and the back of the card (the picture above shows the back of the card) from the Debbi Moore Shabby Chic Seaside CD - you'd never guess this was one of my favourite Debbi's CDs she's made would you???

The card has been finished off with some string (to look like rope), various die-cut shells brushed over with some yellow and brown Pan Pastels, shell ribbon and sentiment off a Debbi Moore Shabby Chic Garden Decoupage in a Box CD.
