Aloha - Saying hello from the beach

Well I wish I was. As winter progresses here and it just gets colder and wetter I long for a beach, a bit of sunshine and a relaxing drink or ten!!!

I'm hoping this card is CAS enough for the Challenge I have made it for. I really left it till the last minute but I was down at mum and dads when I saw it. Drove home, dinner etc then thought well I might as well go for it.

I had this digital image in mind. Its a Tiddy Inks beach extras with these cute crabs that honestly look like they are all waving 'hello'.  I don't know if all the different colours on the umbrella make it look too busy but it was a very quick and simple and easy to colour. Only shading is on the crabs and lots of dots. Felt the front panel needed to look crooked so I went with it. The card base is actually a really pretty blue but looks mauve here. Trust me its blue.

Would like to enter this in

If its not CAS enough ladies please delete.

Hope you all enjoyed your visit and see you soon.

Fun beach scene Aileen, brilliant colours and colouring and I think there's enough white space for a CAS card! Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
