Here comes summer

Hi folks.  I expect you think I've gone nuts with the title of this post with the miserable weather we're having at the moment. I'm forever the optimist that the sun will come out to stay at some point.

I made this card to go into the secretcrafter challenge which is 'here comes summer', but I'm also going to enter it into a few more challenges who have an anything goes theme:

I created the sky background using a template cut out on my Silhouette and Adirondack Stonewashed ink.
The waves and palm tree were also cut out on my Silhouette.
The image is Surfabella from Stamping Bella and coloured with Promarkers
The coconuts are Card Candy from Craftwork Cards.
A bit of Kraft paper has been used for the sand.

Those waves look a bit terrifying to me, but I'm sure the fearless Surfafella will love them.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend.
