Tiddly Inks summer card

I absolutely love trying to incorporate a few challenges into one card, it's such fun and definitely takes me out of my comfort zone sometimes. This is a prime example of a card I wouldn't have thought to do on my own - not a square, add water somewhere, scallops, lots of layers & summer theme!! This is what I came up with. The little beach girl digi is from Tiddly Inks and the umbrella is from Make it Crafty. I used them in a png format so I could layer them and make them one scene. I made the water with baby blue liquid pearls and then outlined "waves". I made the clouds with a homemade template and ink. The scallop shapes were made with my Spellbinders machine and dies.

This card is going in the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe crafts - - Summer theme
Crafts 4 Eternity - - Splish splosh splash (water)
Make it Monday - - Anything goes (every week)
Moving Along with the Times - - anything but square card
Whimsy Stamps challenge - - Lots of layers
Tiddly Inks challenge - - Summer
Little Miss Muffet challenge - - Scallops
Quirky Crafts Challenges - - School's out for summer
Thanks so much for looking,
