Peachy Keen 32 - Summer destinations challenge

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or nearly there :o)

This is my entry for the Peachy Keen challenge this week. As the title suggests, it had to be inspired by a summer destination so I chose Caister last year where I had a great crafting holiday with my friends. It also had to contain one of three Bs... buttons, brads or bling. I used a photograph I took of the beach there as the backing and blinged it up a bit with C&C silver spray and strings of pearls around the topper edge.
The stamp is from PK, coloured with copics with a tiny hand tied bow added. I used my new nesties for the topper and used a template I cut on the Cricut as a template for the card, and inked all around the edge :o)
