Allsorts DT #157 and blog hop candy winner

Morning all,
It looks like you all enjoyed last week's blog hop over at Allsorts, it was a great way to celebrate our Third Birthday, check out last night's post to see if you were a winner/Top 5 entrant. As for my candy, without further ado I can now reveal that the winner picked out of the hat by Random Org is:
#72 Alethea
Congratulations Alethea! Please mail me your postal address to so I can pop your prize in the post.

Now onto this week's
 challenge as set by my fab teamie and friend Fleur, who has named it
'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside'!
I actually do love the seaside and making seaside cards so I was in my element with this theme. (I know, I say this most weeks lol!)

As I only have one seaside background scene and it didn't go with this image I thought I would have a go at freehand drawing my own background and I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out....

The waves are created using Tim Holtz Scrollwork die and I bent some of the edges back to look like white foam, there are two layers of these waves but not very easy to see.
The beach hut 'wings' at either side overhang the edges of the card and turn in slightly.

Go Kreate shaped card die
Nestie lacey square
Nitwits papers
LOTV sentiment
Whimsy Postcard stamp on SU paper
Magnolia Tilda in key largo with my own beach hut background
knotted string, lace and shell charm from stash

Challenge I would like to enter:
Magnolialicious Highlights - Water, water everywhere

Don't forget the main Allsorts challenge blog is the place to get all the latest info on this new challenge and there is some amazing inspiration from the other Dt members too!
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments, scroll down for yesterday's new Fussy and Fancy creation and I may be back tomorrow or Monday if I finish my latest project in time to enter another challenge.....
