365 Cards - Day 40 - Spring Break

Day 40 at 365 Cards already and today's challenge is to use Sun, Sand and Surf to inspire you.
So here is my Seaside card, I was given the beach hut image by a friend and thought it would be great for this challenge, I used watercolours to make them look a little washed out as they would be on the beach.
The Scalloped circle in 2 BG papers surround the image to give the appearance of the sun and the 2 Brown pieces of card imitate the sand, for the surf I have used BG rub ons in white.
I have added a couple of tiny real shells and some stickers to embellish it.
Hope you like it
