Enjoy Summer !

front view
Hello friends ! Enjoying the weather ? Its getting hot here at my place .How I wish we had a beach nearby !! At-least I can have it on my card :D !

Side view
Its a simple card with all hand drawing and water coloring. For the background I drew lines of varying width with water color pencils and then went over it with wet brush for water color effect.Sketched a simple beach scene  on water color paper and colored with water color pencils.Matted the panel on white base and attached the panel with foam dots on card base. Finished off with a twine and (handwritten)sentiment banner. let me show you some pics of  how I created it .

steps
Its Simple but  Is it clean enough to fit in CAS style ? Tell me :)

Reused :
Old invite for layer (below water color paper) and the twine is from a hair accessory .
