Nothing technical here today!

Good evening lovelies! Can't believe it's dark before 9pm :( 
Not my usual type of card, but it was nice to get back to good old cutting out and sticking, I forgot how relaxing cutting out was, so here I have just keep it completely simple, no fancy backgrounds! This image came free with a mag, it is a decoupage booklet that is by Crafters companion, it did come with a boy with a donkey, but me being me had to modify a tiny bit, I used another mag freebie stamps deck chairs and seagull which I coloured with spectrum noirs, I added some stickles to the rock pool and to the seaweed just to give a bit of dimension and the cute little sunglasses which are buttons, I've used these a lot in my summery style cards and I've only one left now so they were a good buy! I matted and layered onto black and then grey, the card base is 8x8 scalloped edge white card. I appreciate all your wonderful comments and thank you very much xxxx
