Holidays 'r' Here!

Well the schools broke up with us last Friday so we're now officially on holiday - well my boys are anyway. Sadly they are passed the beachy days where you jump around on rocks, pick up shells & prod at crabs! This stamp however sums up happy childhood holidays for me. We stayed on the coast, & if it was sunny, (& sometimes even when it wasn't) we headed for the beach.

Anyway enough of a story, & onto the card. Using the layout on the Sugar Bowl Challenge & a Funky Kits stamp called Rockpool Fun, this card has appeared!

I'm also entering this card for the challenge on My Partner In Crafting Crime, where the theme is summertime.

I'm actually quite pleased with my choice of papers on this one too. I used Basic Grey Cupcake Papers. Normally I really struggle with cards requiring 3 papers, but this time, the orange represents the sun, the wavey blue the sea, & obviously we all have an ice-cream on a sunny day at the beach!

Finally, the challenge is called Scallops - so I had to include a little charm of one on the side too.
