Life's a Beach

I am rather chuffed to say this is my first card as a guest design team member for
Make my Monday. I'm looking forward to joining in with the team for the next 3 months.

The theme for this months challenge is At the Beach.

I've made a beach scene which is all die cut, then paper pieced to give a little character to the picture.

The background to the hammock  scene has been coloured using distress inks. There is a patterned paper behind this all but It doesn't seem to show up well on the photo.

Please pop over to the challenge and join in with our challenge and see some lovely inspiration from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
Aud Sentiments - Summer + a sentiment
Die Cut Divas - Summer Fun
Dragonfly Journeys - Paper Piecing
Simply Create too - Summer Fun
Allsorts - use at least 2 dies
Noor Designs - Summer
