Get Funky Challenge - At the Seaside!

Hi all,

It's been another busy week.  It'll be nice to get back into a routine after the summer hols.  It's my baby girl's 1st day at college today.  Where does the time go?  She was so nervous bless her - I can still remember my 1st day at college, it wasn't too long ago, especially if I can still remember it - I was so scared.  She's texted me to say she's got someone to hang around with so that'll make her feel better.  I'm so excited for her as it's like another chapter in her life.....  Anyway onto my card.  I've been meaning to enter this challenge all month so I'm just getting it in for the deadline.  Isn't it nice when an idea comes together so quickly.
I used the Funky hand freebie stripey paper, sentiment and the sun, yellow card - a shell cuttlebug folder to add some texture, a postcard, a freebie sand castle image and country companion mouse from a cardmaking magazine -quite a while ago.  I distressed the postcard, the embossed shell and the edges of the paper with a Tim Holtz ink pad-vintage photo.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Get funky - At the seaside challenge ( use 1 funky hand item)
For fun challenges - kids at play
Crafty cardmakers challenge 51 summer holiday memories
Do you stack up - challenge 36 texture (used shell embossing folder & Vintage photo ink to distress).

See you soon.

Love Debs x
