Morning everyone.  Huge thankyou to everyone who took part in our Movies challenge last week over at TPC.  We have another fabulous challenge for you starting today.  This week your host is the lovely Sue and she has set the theme of...

" B Y   T H E   S E A "

I used a wood mounted stamp from my stash that I've had ages - the writing on the side has rubbed off so unfortunately I can't tell you which make it is.  I used copic to colour and both spellbinder nestie and nellie snellen diecuts for matting.  The paper is by 7Gypsies and the little starfish is from Hobbycraft.  The ribbon and cardstock is from my stash as is the twine.  I distressed the twine a little with some ink as it was too white and made a knot which looks a bit seafarish to me - I think it works ok.
