Just Magnolia and Friday sketchers

A rather tedious day today. I had the electrician come around to refit two extractor fans (pointless now we are moving. I then cleaned up his mess. Before I got around to crafting.
This card is made using two challenges Just Magnolia and Friday sketchers . I used the sketch by Jeanette at Friday sketchers isn't it fab. I used the theme distressing from Just Magnolia.
I colored my image using promarkers and then I used distress inks over the top to vintage it up a bit. I used a nail file on the edges and added some faux stitching. I also used my distress inks on the K&co design paper and used the nail file to distress the edges and the front. I then embossed some coredinations card and sanded it with the nail file.
Finally I added some lace ,a sentiment,shells.I also made a tag and added some flowers and a charm.
I had to laugh she looks like she is in a muddy pool rather than the crisp blue sea so this without intention became a humourous card.
