Life on the ocean waves

Well hello there lovely people,
Today I have a card for LIM where the lovely ladies have challenged us to make a nautical themed card, they said....................
We have another song theme which this time is... 
I do like to be beside the seaside!
Anything with a reference to the sea or the beach or things nautical will be fine as long as your creation is Clean and Simple!
My card is stamped onto layers of white and pastel blue tissue paper and adhered to the card but leaving the edges loose.
I used
The Stamp Man's Aspect of Design Stamps, unavailable now I'm afraid :(
On the outside edges I used Treasure gold in 'White Fire'
Sentiment by Isabelle Norris.
Thanks for joining me today :D Hugs Gay x
