Tuesday Throwdown Guest Designer - 23 April 2013

It's time for week 4 of my Guest Designer role for Tuesday Throwdown for April 2013.  The theme for this week is "make your own background".
This week the sponsor for the challenge is The Twinery.
For my card I decided to make a card for a male (but as I love anything to do with the seaside I'd love to get this card!!) and I have used a new 5x7 inch Darice embossing folder called "Doily" which I embossed on a piece of Coredinations that came with the folder and sanded back to release the core with the sanding paper also included.  I then cut around the doily.  The image I have used is from Delicious Doodles and is called "Beach Huts".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers.  After matting and layering I have punched four holes around the edge and threaded twine through and used my long Tim Holtz brads to add a charm to each corner:  shell, ship's wheel, fish and starfish.  I have finished the card off with a sentiment from a Debbi Moore CD and some Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium in gold to add some sparkle and to replicate the sun shining on the sea.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
