Summer lovin' had me a blast

Had this card made last week but didn't post it coz it just needed something............. Sometimes I find if I leave a card I'm not happy with for a few days then come back to it I look at it with fresh eyes and what it needs usually jumps right out at me. A few sea shells and some mega pearls later '' et voila! ''

The image is Mo's coloured with Promarkers and cut out with some dies. Papers are by Papermania distressed and pierced.

 Stamped sea horses and starfish are retired stampin up stamps I've had them ages and will never tire of them. Pearls ribbon and sea shells from my stash
