A Beach Shack ~ MIM #113

Hey!!! It's Make It Monday linky party time. Check out the blog and see the wonderful DT creations, the cards are stunning this week!!!
We are being sponsored by  Ladies that Craft  and you can see all the details further down in this post.
My card was made using this fabulous image called Beach Shack. I love it and I'm sure you are going to like all the images the DT have used.

I decided to make a centre step card to feature this image.
Here is what I came up with.....

 Front of card
 Inside of card
SU Garden Green cardstock for the Centre Step Card
Blue/green cardstock from stash
Digi image from Ladies that Craft called Beach Shack
The sign post and Beach Rescue post are also from Ladies that Craft
DP from My Mind's Eye ~ Good Day Sunshine
Sentiment from Kanban ~ Little Friends - TLC
Copic Markers
Marvy Marker (used on sentiment so I could split it up into 3 words)
Wide Oval punch
I hand cut the little bit of grass at the bottom of the sign

 I am entering this into the following challenges:
365 Cards - Day 239 ~ Four Folds- there are 4 fold lines on my centre step card!!!
Brown Sugar Challenge Blog - Challenge #13 ~ Anything Goes
