Beach Life

This is the second card I made today and I went for a beach scene on this one. As it's almost the end of the school year here in the UK, I always give out thank you cards to my TAs, volunteers and cleaner for helping me out throughout the year. I also want to wish them a happy Summer, so this card is for one of them.

This is for Crafty Sentiments' Challenge Anything Goes and for Totally Gorjuss' Challenge #244 to add a tag. Just could not get the skin to work properly on this one - wouldn't blend at all well and kept going all patchy. I think my copics probably need a clean!
