Saltwater Kisses Beach Card

Today I created a scene card that looks like a great vacation spot to me.  
I used a card cut from cricut Life is a Beach cartridge for the dolphins in the waves.   I chose to put the center cut-outs back in the  dolphin bodies and inside of the fins after I brush them with my wink of Stella to make them sparkly.
The mermaid is also from the same cartridge.  I used green chalk for the scales on her tail, wink of Stella on her top and a purple pearl bead for the center of her flower in her hair.   I went over the lines in her face very carefully with a light gray chalk.   The fiery sun is from a metal diecut that I inked up and chalked to give it the different color effects and I used clear wink of Stella again on the center of the sun  to give it some sparkly effect.   The Seagulls and starfish are both from a diecut set that came with the beach hut.   The adorable stamp as from a new set I just received called Polynesian paradise.
The background paper was from my scrap bin that looked like a sky background to me.
