Edwin and Magnolia, beach themed card

Hello All My Lovely Friends.
I made this Edwin & Magnolia Card Today. After sunning myself in my garden for a while hee.
She is Tilda With Seashells and He is Edwin With Starfish and the sunny background (I think, as it does not say on the packaging).
Anyhow, here is my card

Coloured with copics and prisma pencils, I have sprinkled shabby beige frantage and embossed to give a raised sandy texture, I did the same with my no lines card too, as it gives an especially good effect.
I took a little inspiration from Jenny Hodges and added a couple of die cut corners. Thanks Jen!

Rolled Roses From The Ribbon Girl.

Lovely Angel Fish From Live & Love Crafts and the papers are magnolia nautical papers, from the new collection. The lace is from my own stash

I have threaded some twine between the die cut waves to add some interest and also through the doohickey, one is a pink and white striped devine twine.

With the doohickey removed from behind the image.
WOW, it has been so hot here today, I had to come inside for a little while, I started to make this card yesterday, so had a little break from the sun and finished it off.
I hope that you like it and enjoy the rest of the bank holiday, here in the UK!
Take care everyone.
