Vintage Summer

Hi all, Well I am plased to say the rain has not gotten here yet! The clouds are looking very ominous so think I better go find my two wee boys - Sooty and Sweep - they are loving this nice weather and are out playing in the garden from morning til night! Only pop into the house every so often to make sure we are still around (and for a cuddle from Mammy of course). I got a bit lost with this card as it is supposed to be vintage, seaside and summerfun!! Yikes!! The only vintage thing is my brain today! But I will enter it into the challnge anyway - at least the sentiment looks vintage!
It is for the following challenges:~
I Love Promarkers Challenge 28 - The Seaside; Polka Doodles Challenge 33 - Vintage and Totally Papercrafts Challenge 30 - Summer Fun.

Image freebie from somewhere coloured with my fav PMs ~
Blush, Ivory & Satin for skin and sunbed;
Caramel & Sandstone for sand;
Butercup, Mustard, Meadow Green, Apple, Lavendar, Slate, Dusky Rose & Blossom for parasol;
Matted and layered onto handmade pink paper;
Backing papers from stash inked around the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink from Tim Holtz and distressed using my Xcut tool;
Sentiment was won in a competition;
Ribbon from stash.
