Without Words - Beach holiday/ at the seaside

Hello everyone :o)

Time for a new challenge at Without Words, and this month our theme is 'beach holiday/ at the seaside'... remember you must keep it CAS (no overdoing the embellishments!) and use a hand-coloured image.  We're sponsored by Make It Crafty and Quixotic Paperie so two chances to win this month :o)

I haven't used a Magnolia stamp for ages, so I thought I'd dig one out for this card.  I made a mess of his face though... well actually the silly sticky copics made the mess, I just tried to correct it with a Prisma pencil, but it didn't really work!

Items Used
White linen cardstock - Papermill Direct
Stamp - Edwin with starfish (not sure what his real name is) - Magnolia
Colouring - copics
Papers - Beach Cottage - Pink Petticoat
Sentiment - Tiny Seashore Sentiments - Pink Petticoat
NEW Memory Box Serene Scallop die - MCH
Impression Obsession Flags dies - MCH
Red pearl from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simply Magnolia - anything goes
Dream Valley - summer days
Charisma Cardz - up in the clouds (mine are copic clouds, hope that's ok)
A Little Bit Crafty - summer sun

Off for a little commenting catch up, I'm very behind as usual... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

You don't need a lot of embellies when you have gorgeous layers like this! Your colouring looks fab despite the sticky Copics - I hate when that happens :-(
