I do like to be beside the seaside..........

Hi and a big welcome to you all, thanks for visiting today. 
Fridays seem to come round far too quickly at the moment and as it is Friday again it means another new challenge over at Crafts4eternity. Our theme for this coming week is 
which means you can join us with any summer themed project that you make.

I have made a vintage style card using Kraft card and distress inks as watercolours78.
all stamped images from Crafty Individuals CI-278 plate and sun is Indigoblu's "Square peg in a round hole" stamped with 3 distress inks.

Kraft card has been embossed using Tim Holtz Alterations Postcard folder, I have had to piece it up but I have covered the join using some cheesecloth dyed with distress stain.
The final touch was a few shells collected from the beach a couple of weeks ago.

So why not join in with us with your bit of Summer Sun.
This challenge is sponsored by Crafts4eternity and one randomly chosen winner will have a choice of 3 digital images.
Hope to see you play along with us this week.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:-
