Beach Card - For Stampin for the Weekend

Hi everyone! I’m back with another card.
This time, one I made for Stampin for the Weekend and the theme is........
Getting Warmed Up
Could be an image or warm colours, or what ever you come up with!
Since I live in South African and it is currently SO hot here, I made a beach card.

This is the first card I made with more than one stamp!
I used 3 stamps!!
I used stamps from Whiff of Joy’s Fun in the sun kit.
And colored them with the following Promarkers:
For the Girl -
Henna, Terracotta, Spice, Coral and Apricot - for her hair
Blush - for her skin 
Cyan and Sky Blue - for her dress
Pastel Yellow and Dusky Pink - for her top 
Bright Orange - for the book 
Yellow - for her shoes 
Cool Grey 1 - for around the stamp

For the Crab -
Bright Orange - for his skin 
Berry Red - for his mouth 
Cool Grey 1 - for around him
For the Sand Castle
Yellow and Pastel Yellow - for the sand 
Bight Orange - for two of the flags 
Cyan and Sky Blue - for the other two flags, water and a sea shell 
Coral - for the sea stares 
Cool Grey 1 - for around the stamp

I used some of my new flowers and a bow I had for a long time as a finishing touch.
Please do hop over to Stampin for the Weekend and check out the stunning cards!
