Crafty Ann's #46 Summertime and the Living is Easy

The fortnights are fairly whizzing by here and it's time for another challenge at CACB and this time we want to see some summer themes in your creations. This is my card:

I've used the Tropical Beach image from Crafty Ann's and digitally pieced it with some backing papers from the Mottled Stone collection (also from Crafty Ann's) . I've then added some further images to the scene (hammock from Sylvie, shells and bucket from Daisie, kite and hot air balloons were freebies - sorry I don't know where from). The sun and the boats were shapes in Publisher and the birds were made using the letter "V". The tree, hammock, chairs, sunshade, kite, spade and bucket are all coloured with promarkers. The image has been framed in Publisher and the sentiment written in the sand. Image is mounted onto card and I've used foam pads to mount to the base card, then finished it off with a ribbon.
