at the beach...

The theme at Karen's Doodles had been "at the beach" this week. So I had been quite happy as I could try out putting digi stamps together... I used the Tropical Beach background and the image on the beach. I think it fits perfectly for this card.
Das Thema bei Karen's Doodles war diese Woche "am Strand". Daher war ich glücklich, denn ich konnte endlich ausprobieren mehrere Digis zusammen zu nutzen... Ich habe den Tropical Beach Hintergrund und den Digi On the Beach benutzt. Ich denke diese passen perfekt zu dieser Karte.

Stamp: "Tropcial Beach Set" (background) and "on the beach" from Karen's Doodles
Colours: Colour Pencils from Faber Castell, decorative chalks from Joy Crafts (to make the card glimmer)
Sketch: Hanna & Friends
Dies: Spellbinder Nestabilities
Water-Ribbon, plain papers and cardstock from my stash. The flower and the stones are from an old passepartout I still had in my drawer and then I also used some shells from my trip to Australia...
