It's summer!

We had a real heatwave here,
just as I was making this card...

At Patties Creations this month, we are challenging you to use a
"beach / under the sea" theme.

I used the image called "beach time" which was wonderful to colour. 
I really played with my alcohol pens and tried to get some texture in the sand,
using a pointilism technique. 

I diecut the sentiment, after colouring various grades of blues.
I haven'y used this die before and I have had it for years!
The baking paper came from a papercraft pack that I've had for yonks, too. 
I tried to make the image resemble an old polaroid picture. 
The butterflies are from one of my favourite punches from
Martha Stewart.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
