Beach scene - sketch challenge

Gill's challenge this week is a sketch, goody! and a beach scene.

 I had some stamps of palm trees and flip flops etc but I have just treated myself to my first house mouse stamps and decided to use them!
I used a square base card and covered it in some hot pink BP with flowers on that I got from
Jacki :)) I added some pink grosgrain ribbon down the side.
I stamped the scene in black Brilliance and coloured using promarkers. I mounted it onto some bright pink card and attached it with foam pads. The sentiment was part of the stamp set and will be a great card for my friend Caroline whose birthday is the end of this month. I cut out one of the small images and used it on the corner and finished off with pearls, my favourite!

Good luck with the challenge and thanks for looking:)
