A Day at the Beach with Saturated Canary - MIM #122

Make It Monday time again!!! So many entries to look at last week and all of them well worth a peek.
Today we are being sponsored by Saturated Canary, lots of gorgeous images to be found at the shop and the lucky winning commenter this week will be able to choose two fabulous images, so don't forget to visit each others blogs and leave a comment.
Congratulations to Deonna for being the featured artist from last week and also to Carol as the winning commenter. I hope you enjoy your prize.
The DT were lucky to receive an image each to make our cards and I chose this gorgeous beach babe called Toes in the Sand and here is my card featuring her. I distressed the layers of card and paper before putting the image on.
