Surf's up!

Hello everyone

I hope you have had a good week.

Not much crafting been going on here recently,  I blame the tennis and cycle race (and of course work)! Anyhow I've had the idea for this card for a while and have finally got it finished, it's almost how I imagined it!

Close up:

Items used:

Stamp - Penny Black, Sentiment tags - LOTV
Coloured with ProMarkers
Distress ink salty ocean sponged on edge of circle and on the tags
Card - Papermill Direct, glitter card from stash
Papers - LOTV
Dies - Memory Box Big Splash border, Joy! Crafts palm tree, Spellbinders circles
Ribbon and gems from stash

(I hadn't realised until after I'd uploaded the photos that one of the gems had come loose but soon got that sorted!)

I would like to enter the following challenges:
