Beach Bum

Hi - hope everyone's ok. I'm so looking forward to tomorrow - its the Summer Crafting Craft Show at Doncaster. On Friday I had wonderful day there crafting with Stephanie and Nancy. Made lots of different things and came home with a great goodie bag. My daughter also won the raffle so all in all a great day. Looking forward to shopping with Kathryn and Helen and Rachel tomorrow.
Anyway here's a card I was asked to make. It was for a friends brother who spends a lot of time at his holiday villa in Spain. The digi image is from  leighspapercreation called Beach Bum.

I used copics to colour the image. The backing papers are all from my stash and I just loved the sentiment on the backing paper. I used a sentiment from Nana Vics Summer Set 1 - these are great with lots of choice. I decorated a pin with beads and a small dolphin, added a Happy birthday sentiment and to finish some accent beads and a starfish brad. I am quite pleased with the results as it's a man card and I find them difficult to design.I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
