DT Call - Totally Tilda

Hello lovely peeps!
Oooh I have a week off work!! **Smiles**
Time to get all my DT work up to date and get a bit ahead of things if I can in readiness for the arrival of my first grandchild.  Only 17 days to go! *Excited squeals*
So, it has been a full twelve months since Susie had a DT call at Totally Tilda and the time has arrived to see if I can be lucky enough to be chosen for another term. (Fingers crossed)
So the theme for the DT Call was:
Well, when I was a kid I can remember looking forward to the six weeks summer holidays because we always went to the seaside.  And, guess what - the sun always shone for our two weeks away.  Dad always used to tell us kids that he had ordered it especially for our holidays! LOL
So I had this card in mind - something a bit different.
Not sure I am entirely happy with it but I don't have time to make another now.
So here we go then:
I had the pattern for a 3D shadow box card to cut out on my Silhouette so that's what I went for.
The cutting it out was the easy bit! LOL
I have used Edwin on the first inside layer,
then a beach hut
then a little sailing boat in the background.
Tilda is sat on the harbour wall with a rope along the edge looking out across the beach and to the sea. (Well at least that is what it is supposed to look like!)
The gorgeous Sheer Puff Dot ribbon is of course, from Crafty Ribbons and the gorgeous little camera charm was in a pack I won from Susie, thank you darling!!
So there you have it, my entry for the DT call at Totally Tilda!
