Beach Ball Girl by Spesch Stamps and an Award

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
On Saturday I made three cards, this is the third one and I played with my winnings from Mad 4 Markers this is one of four digital images I won from the voting on the Copical Blog Hop.  She is called Beach Ball Girl and you can buy her here thank you Tracey for sending them over to me, loved browsing your store and selecting some beautiful images.

Here my creation
As always I love to decorate the inside of the card to match the exterior.  The base layer for this card is a brown card which is also the contrast.  The papers are Papermania Capsule collection.  The flowers and embellishments are from my stash.
I have used several layers of the beautiful cheerful orange/yellow papers.
The image has been coloured in copics.  The distressing and stamping is using Tim Holtz Mustard Seed, such a gorgeous bright yellow.  I have used a dotty technique to make the sand and coloured the sky too.  The lolly has a layer of glossy accents on it to make it look wet and drippy.

I also received this lovely award from the talented Arline, thank you hun
