The image was coloured with a mix of Promarkers & Flexmarkers.

I hope  look like little spectators in a crowd! lol

At The Seaside!

Happy Sunday Blogging Buddies!
It's time for Team A to inspire you over at 
The Craft Pad this week!
The theme chosen by our lovely Pauline is
"At The Seaside"
Here's my card!

The images this week were kindly supplied by one of our sponsor's

The Stamping Boutique!
Who are offering a prize of 3 digi's from their store!

The image I have used is Girl Walking on the Beach.
A real stunner of an image!

I played with my Promarkers & Flexmarkers & coloured her up,
just to see where she would take me!
Which brings me to our second sponsor this week

Who are offering a prize of this set of Promarkers
Well worth playing for!

Not sure I did the best job with the sea but I was rather pleased 
with the little crab! lol
It seems the little lady has gone to a Tropical Island!
For the layout I used the sketch from

I rotated it a quarter turn

I used an A5 card blank in pink for the base of my card.
I used a plain green paper to mat & the lush & beautiful  DP's were 
once again from a candy that I won ages ago &
 I have no idea who they are by!
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the borders.
The buttons are from my stash & the ribbon is recycled from a gift!

I decorated the inside of the card just a little bit.
I do hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope to see you "At The Seaside" with The Crafty Pad this week!
