Summer wishes card

As soon as I saw lulupu's summer themed card challenge my mind was filled with so many different ideas... I Have not tried CAS cards yet. So I really wanted to make something the same day. The first card I made was with watermelon and " Enjoy each slice of this summer" sentiment. But it looked simple and empty so came up with this beach theme which is my friend mythili's idea.

Beach, A perfect place to spend our vacation in summer. So thought it would match the challenge very well .

Planned to use real sand for beach sand and used peacock feather distress ink to color the beach. I know water looks clumpsy, am not really that good in using distress inks. It will take years  for me to master I think :(

Used some embossed stars as starfish. Thought Sun ,clouds and umbrella will make the perfect scene. And my card is done :) :)
