Mo Manning Summer Beach Card

Hello everyone,
Anyone fancies a summer card? I made this one a while ago and thought I'd share it with you before the summer is over...sigh.... 
I took a loooong vacation, for over a month now and haven't colored all this time. I feel strange and can't wait to put my hands on those copics I left at home I thought maybe I'll get a bit over the addiction. Well, it's already too much:) While in the countryside with my little one I kept my hands busy making jams, compotes, putting up pickles and other stuff and time just flew by... Now it's time to get back to work...hehe
Here's my summer card featuring one of Mo's older images, a girl heading to the beach.
The big sunflower is quilled, I spent quite some time putting it together but I love the way it turned out:)

Here are some close-ups:

And a close-up of the quilled flower:

Ingredients for my card:
Image: Mo Manning- To the Beach
Medium: copics, chalks, acrylic white paint
DP: Echo Park- Paradise Beach- digital from Jessica Sprague
Embellishments: handmade quilled flower and leaves, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, charm, shell, net from stash, ribbon from The Ribbon Girl
Sentiment: cut from foam with a Sizzix Alphabet die

 Hope you like my card, I surely had lots of fun designing it.
