Non-Cricut "Life's A Beach" Card

I am so ready for summer!!
I am not a huge fan of Winter or Spring although out of the two I'd rather have Spring.
My husband has been mapping out plans and dates for when we can take our waverunners out on the lake and it has made me really, really want summer to come.
Although we had lots of sun this last weekend it is now pouring rain outside. So to cheer myself up I decided to make a beach themed card.

For this card I used a free digital image I got off the web but for some reason I can't remember where I got it.
(If anyone knows where this came from please let me know so I can give that person credit.)
For this card I colored all of the images with my Bic markers.
I colored 2 of the same stamps so I could pop-dot them up.

Here is a close up of the sentiment which I printed off my computer.

This is showing you how I pop-dotted most of the images to add dimension.

I hope you enjoy and have a great day!
