End of Summer

This is my card for this fortnights challenge at Open-Minded Crafting Fun. I used Watercolor paper for the background and made the scene, as I wanted it to look like a picture frame, remembering summer at the beach. I used Daffodil Delight for the sun, Temping Turquoise for the water, and Baked Brown Sugar for the sand, the plant image from Wetlands stamp set is stamped with old olive. The image I have used is called Beach Days and is from Flat Friends. I made the frame from Crumb Cake cutting out the rectangle with my paper cutter, then wrapped it in natural twine, then added the seashell, sand dollar and starfish buttons to the corners.
 We are also sponsored by  KennyK, MilkCoffee Designs and The Paper Shelter
