Summer Girl for Totally Paper Craft Challenge

Hi to everyone, I hope this finds you all well.  My card for todays Totally Paper Crafts Challenge features the cute image Summer Girl by Mo Manning and can be found here.

The Challenge at Totally Paper Crafts is Here Comes Summer.  Our Sponsor this week is Simons Says Stamps.  Please visit the Challenge to view the fabulous inspiration provided by my talented Design Sisters.

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in the last Challenge.  The standard of work submitted was outstanding and your cards are a joy to look at.  

A closer view of this lovely cute image is below.

List of Materials used for this card:

12 x 12 Cardstock.  Nautical Fun Digital Papers  from Etsy. 
 I have recently aquired a new sewing machine which you will be getting fed up hearing about, but I love it and have used this to sew some edge detail on this card.
Wonderful image from Mo Manning as listed above, coloured with Promarker Pens and white Gel Pen.  The sky is Distress Ink with details in Gel Pen.
The bunting is a digi stamp coloured with my pens.
Starfish are from a Digi Sheet found here
Flowers, ribbon which I have had since last summer and pearls are from my stash.

Image showing bottom of the Easel Card featuring lovely verse stamp.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges: - Holiday - Vacation -  Anything Goes - A rose by any other name

Thank you so much for reading this post and taking the time to look at my card.  Sending warmest wishes to you all.
