I don't know about other countries but here in the UK many coastal towns have a problem with seagulls who often take it upon themselves to dive bomb people especially if they have any kind of food they can steal , easy pickings I guess.

I recently bought some seagull dies from Joanna Sheen  and decided to make a sea scene but the thought of squawking and dive bombing seagulls took over after spending a weekend in Bristol and being woken each morning by seagulls.

I startred by cutting out the seagulls and colouring them with promarkers along with the wooden poles and chains that came with the beachfront seagull die I also recently bought. I cut some stitched rectangles and on the smallest rectangle I used a poppystamp cloud die to cut some card that I used to chalk over the edges and created a cloud filled sky. I mounted the cloud rectangle to the 2nd rectangle and mounted both onto a white base card. 

I stuck the beach front seagulls to the bottom of the rectangles  towards the edge of the card. I added the flying seagulls to the sky and of scattering of seagulls around the base of the card. I finished the
card with a peel off  harpy birthday sentiment as I thought it would make a great guys birthday card and we have a family friends birthday coming up next month.

What a fun card with so many nice seagulls. They look very pretty on your card but you are right on the beach side they can be quite annoying... I like how you colored them !
Great car and great idea of putting everything together.
Thank you for sharing your card at the Stempelgarten Challenge.
Have a nice day, regards
