Update - whoo-hoo! My card was voted into the top 5 at Stamp Something - thank you ladies!  
And it was also featured on Tiddly Ink Fabby Friday - whoo-hoo again!!
Hi peeps,  it's Thursday so let's Move Along With The Times!   We have a fabulous challenge for you at MAWTT this week, chosen by the Lovely Lisa - HOLIDAYS! 
My DT card Recipe:-
Base card - Crumb Cake - Stampin' Up
Papers - Stella Rose - My Mind's Eye
Ribbon - Gisela Graham
The fabulous "Bathing Beauty" image is from Tiddly Inks
and has been coloured with Copics.
The little starfish are from the Tiddly Inks "Queen of the Castle" digi set.
The postcard was made by photocopying the top part of a mini postcard, (it had some printed wording on the bottom, which I didn't want)!, onto a piece of lined Stella Rose paper, I distressed the edges and added the hand-written wording.
To finish - a punched flower attached to Bathing Beauty's hat.  Distressing and stitching around all edges.
The "water" was roughly torn and the 3 starfish were coloured with DI.
I would like to enter the challenge at:-
Stamp Something- Beachy.
So, get out those caravans, flip-flops, sunglasses, aeroplanes, bikinis, or whatever, and join in the holiday fun!  Hope to see you soon!
Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish and the prize is 3 digi images from their on-line store.
Love to all ~

Isn't she gorgeous, your ribbon looks fantastic and perfectly matches both the backing papers and your colouring. I love that combination. I had to laugh at all that careful choosing of papers and then you had some all the time. That sounds like something I'd do!!
