At the beach

   We start a new challenge at Creative Corner today, the theme of which is 'At the beach'.
   I wrapped satin ribbon round the lower edge of paper from the All Aboard pack from The English Paper Company and matted and layered it onto blue core'dinations cardstock and white card. (The paper itself had a pale yellow background but for some reason it shows up as pale blue in the photograph.)
   The digi image called 'flip flops' is from the Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet. I coloured it using Promakers  and cut it out using a Spellbinders floral oval die. Whilst still in the die I dusted the background with distress inks. Once it was removed from the die I coloured the edge using Promarkers. I then attached it to the card along with a bow made from the satin ribbon.
   The letters which I glued to the ribbon were cut from red core'dinations cardstock using dies from Tattered Lace's elegant alphabet set.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
