Fab n Funky DT card challenge 129 Summer Holiday

Good Morning everyone, I hope you are all well.

Time for a new Fab n Funky challenge and the lovely Anne-Marie has chosen a wonderful theme for you:

'We're all Going on a Summer Holiday'
I'm sure many of us could do with one of those at the moment.!!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is The Digi Doodle shop with the prize of $10 to spend in their online store - lucky you!

Each of the DT members got to choose an image from the Digi Doodle shop - WOW there were so many to choose from. After much delibaration I went for Beach Babes as it reminded me of an old photo that my mum has of my brother and myself on holiday in Devon ( a few years ago now)
I really enjoyed colouring the image and tried to limit the colours to match my gorgeous Prima papers.
Anyway here's my card:

Items Used:
Digi stamp - Beach Babes Digi Doodle shop coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Papers -  Prima
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Peacock  Feathers (to ink edges of  scalloped card and flowers )
Dienamics fancy flourish
Nellie snellen floral punch
Personal impressions sentiment stamp

So, why not pop over to the Fab n Funky blog for more details on the challenge and to check out all of the wonderful cards made by the rest of the design team.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

That Craft Place - anything goes
Catch the bug challenge - anything goes
Crafty Pad - At the seaside
CRAFT challenge - splashy/water themed
Pile it on - It's a shore thing
Card Mad Fairy - summertime
Incy Wincy - summertime
Totally Papercrafts  - here comes summer!!!

Right that's all from me for now, thanks for looking and reading my waffle! Just off now to check out what you have all been up to today.
Bye for now
