Warm Summer Days

What is with me creating work for challenges that I have a month to think about way before the deadline whereas I keep missing week long ones?! Grr @ working for a living!
Well anyway it seemed prudent to combine two or more challenges so in reality I only had a week to make it! The layout is based (loosely) on the sketch at 2sketches4you but I went with the bythecuteandgirly theme of 'Warm Summer Days' which to me almost always means beach (altho I hardly ever get to go to one! Did I mention I live in THE MIDLANDS!). The colours are actually a little more obvious on this pic than they are in real life as the scene is layered from Coredinations whitewash cardstock, torn and slightly sanded to reveal the colour. The ribbon was from a 99p pack from Hootys and the shells etc are beads I got from The Early Learning Centre about two years ago! Oh the backing paper is from the free gift stack from this months Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine; My Minds Eye 'Quite Contrary'.
