By The Seaside

It looks like I've chased away the sun by making this seaside themed card. It's been heavy rainy downpours for the last couple of days. but hopefully the sun will come back again soon.

I have made this card using Clarity Stamps, one of my favourite brands. They have been coloured using Tim Holtz distress markers. I have added some real tiny shells for good measure. The aperture has been cut using a Go Create large die.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
