Eureka Stamps Challenge - Vacation

At Eureka Stamps today the challenge theme is Vacation.  I don't know why but I struggle with theme's like this.  I would rather have a theme that says, use ribbon, birthday, anything goes, etc.  That's just my feelings.  That being said, I worked with two images to come up with this card.

Card Supplies:
A2 card base
Images - QKR Stampede Image #24174Umbrella and Eureka Stamps Image #28902-Shell Border (I colored the shells & cut them out and pasted them on the "sand"
Sun - Cricut cartridge Mother's Day Bouquet-this is actually a flower image on this cartridge
I tore cardstock to make my sand and ocean.
Chalk - Clouds in sky - I'm not sure they show up in the picture.
Promarkers used to color the images:
Umbrella - Apple Green, ForestGreen, Yellow, and Tulip Yellow
Shells - Putty, Almond, Soft Peach, Satin, Ivory

Thank you for the visits today.  I pray your week will be filled with joy and happiness.  God Bless You!!!  Peggy
