Happy Hour Starts Right Now card (Tiddly Inks image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

My two cards I'm posting tonight are both created with summery images from Tiddly Inks. I love this image so much, it really reminds me of holidays which I can only dream about at the moment seeing as it's winter here and we had our big European holiday last year so no more for a while sob sob. 

I added some gold glitter with clear glue onto the "sand" for texture and used my handmade cloud stencil to make the sky. I used the Lawn Fawn die borders for the sand and water layers, also using a wave die too. I then used some Stickles to give the waves a little dimension. The background palm trees are images from Scrapper's Delights, I used PNG images so I could add them into the scene.
