Splish splash

My young step nephew next month so I thought I would get a head start and make a fun card for him.I decided to use this fun stamp and although September may well be wet and gloomy if autumn decided to raise its head early I am banking on an Indian summer as we don't seem to have had more than a couple of weeks of real summer sunshine.

I coloured with promarkes and kept the rest of the card quite simple with blocks of bold prime colours. The sentiment is a peel off as are the shells I accented the card with.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

The Male room-vacation/on the beach
4 crafty chicks-nautical
fairytale challenges-summer holiday
graphit markers-palate/anything goes
QKR-day at the beach
the stamping boutique-at the beach
creatalicious-summer beach fun
sweet stamps-masculine
ollcb-for the boys
