Summer sea and surf

For this card I've used the Sweet stop sketch 167:

I used some DCWV surfboard paper for the background - I've had this for ages and ages and never used it.

The image is by Di's Digi Downloads, coloured with copics.
Colours for the card were prompted by Crafts4eternity 80, where this picture was given for the Olympic colours:

The pieces of striped paper are from offcuts, so another one for Pixie's crafty snippets 29and Hiding in my craftroom 54: super scraps Saturday.

So here is my card:

    The bottom photo of the beach with two chairs reminds me so much of the beach right outside the bungalow we stay in on Koh Samui, Thailand. Bliss! Now see, I've gone all homesick :(
