Seaside Fun

I had such fun making this card - I decided to just make a card for fun, no occasion or person in mind, no thought to giving it to anyone, just for the fun of it - and it really was fun and kind of made itself in the end.

I had downloaded the papers for the Get Funky challenge ages ago and just left them on my computer, but then whilst blog hopping yesterday, I came across instructions for a tent card and really loved the idea - immediately the paper from the Get Funky challenge came back to my mind and I set to it.  The image in the centre of the card is a digi stamp from the centre of the Simply Cards & Papercrafts magazine - they have these most months and some of the images are just brilliant.  I used a 2 in 1 glue pen and hot foils to create the fins on the fish and I've given the sun a coat of glossy accents.

I really love this card, it makes me smile to look at and I shall probably never give it to anyone - I like it too much! & hope you do too
