Fun In The Sun!

Morning Lovely Bloggers!
It's Wednesday & time for the latest challenge at 
 where the theme is "Fun In The Sun!"
here's my card!
I've used the lovely Fanny Beach image with
a cropped down, Downtown Delmar Disco!
I added the thought bubble & sentiment in my graphics programme.
The Design Paper was a freebie from Jak Heath
I used it to paper piece her bikini & hairband,  
then added some shading with promarkers!
I'm not convinced Fanny is having as much fun as she should be!
She's on holiday far across the sea, celebrating Independence day
with her mates in Dudeville Hollow, just a short couple of weeks
 after celebrating her first Wedding Anniversary with 
Delmar & she's missing him terribly!
This time last year they were still on Honeymoon!
So she's sending him this little "Wish You Were Here" card!
As you can see from the inside I've used a green square card blank base!
I added a matt of yellow paper then the Design Paper. 
A panel with the DP again & some ribbon & buttons from my stash!
Found some little fish bone charms in my stash so I added them too!
Do stop by & check out the other awesome DT projects
you won't be disappointed I'm sure!
I hope you find the time to play along too!
