A Sarah Hurley challenge entry .

Hello blog pals , welcome to my room . Warm as toast in here after a 14.6 degree day I believe. I have tried to catch up on commenting today . Seen some awesome projects.
I had some snail mail with new stamps as well , so was keen to ink them .
This is the first time I have searched for a challenge  that my " imagined card " would suit , before I created it .   I came across
here the theme is Summer .
Sarah says that it is not imperitive that you use one of her images but that she would be delighted if  you  did . I dont have any of hers yet ...maybe soon .
Here is the card I hope meets the requirements

All card stock and dsp is from SU. Nellie's Multi frames used as layers for images . Thongs , bag and sentiment from Shoes'n'Bags set LadybugCraftsink . Umbrella from Kaszazz. Coloured with copin pens . Sorry I have not got into the habit yet of recording numbers. The umbrella had a patterned top but I cut its shape  from white card and paper pieced that over original stamping , then coloured brightly .I used scallop frame as connection to waves at beach .
So happy with the result and hope you like it too .
    Am entering into this challenge
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
