House Mouse Challenge #60

I don't own any Beach themed House Mouse stamps and as this week's theme was On the Beach, I thought I was stuck! Then I found some stamped images gathered from image swaps and this one was there!

Now I cannot think where I got this sketch from - Leigh , HELP!! I only used part of the image, coloured it with Prismacolour pencils. cut it out with Nesties and layered it on SU cardstock and SU DSP!. The little closed umbrella has been raised on Dimensionals and after I punched out the suns, I placed circles on them which were covered with Dimensional Magic.

I deliberately left off any raised embellishments as this card will go overseas sometime this year. It was hard not to use some ribbon or brads!!
