St Luke's Charity card challenge

The theme this month for the St Luke's charity card challenge is "Oh I do like to be beside the seaside".
Now I don't possess any suitable stamps so I created a card using Craft Artist. The picture in the photo frame is a photo of the entrance to Dartmouth that I took and I used software to turn it into a pencil sketch so that I could give it a colour wash. I decoupaged the starfish and the shell and added some gingham ribbon.
This is a challenge that is well worth supporting, check out the link and also look at the amazing DT cards:)
Thanks for looking and please leave a comment they are much appreciated.

I think your picture is fabulous - using your own picture and making it a sketch is a brilliant idea. Thanks for playing along with St Luke's Charity Card Challenge.

What a good idea to turn your photo into a pencil sketch - really effective.
