Totally Tilda Challenge ~ 79

Good Morning my lovelies!

It's time for a new challenge at Totally Tilda and the theme for the next fortnight is "Tilda at the seaside or BBQ"
Before I get down to my card, we have some exciting news! 
We have a guest designer with us for the next 3 months...
She's amazingly talented, her colouring is simply jaw-dropping, and she can embellish too...not going to be friends with her! No Sir-eee!
Only pulling your leg Mel, I'm delighted to be working with you 

Back to my card.
As I'd got some stamps from the new Sea Breeze collection, I went with the Seaside theme...

Tilda on The Beach has been coloured with the usual bad boys...DI re-inkers and markers.
I got the new colours of markers off my BFF Amanda - thank you mwah mwah mwah - and I was itching to use them. I particularly love the shade Evergreen Bough as I have many papers in this shade.

The papers are Echo park Sweet Day - a birthday gift from last year! I now, I'm so bad, but I use do use all my stash eventually.
The waves were cut with a set of PTI dies, as were the little clouds.
Scantily embellished with a bit of twine, a fishy charm and some enamel dots.

Our lovely sponsor for this challenge is Bunny Zoe's Crafts
