Fun in the Sun

'Fun in the Sun', is the theme chosen  and hosted by Lin,  for the new challenge  at Crafty Cardmakers.
We also have two sponsors this time, Saturated Canary and Sir Stampalot.
Please pop over for all the details and join in the fun.
For me, I just had to use this super image from Crafty Individuals on this card.
 These girls do look like they are enjoying themselves. I used watercolour paints to colour the image.
The background papers are mainly from a  Graphics45 stack.
I made the banner with scraps of card and some chipboard letters, coloured with  Distress Markers.

I will also be joining the challenges at-
Out of a Hat Creations Challenge 73 is Summer Days
Crafty Individuals have an Open Challenge for August
Crafts-Too Challenge You  - August  Twist 2 Beach colours.
 The background papers and colours I used represent the sea and sand as well as the image.

Thankyou for stopping by I always appreciate your comments.
