My Partner in Crafting Crime 'Lets Hit the Beach!'

So sorry this is late-our internet has been playing up grr! Anyway our challenge over at My Partner in Crafting Crime this fortnight is 'Lets hit the beach'-very suitable for this heatwave we are having at the moment! This will be our last challenge until September so make sure you come and join us to win some goodies for the summer!
I chose to make a shaker card with a lovely digi I won from delicious doodles-isnt she gorgeous! I coloured her with promarkers and coloured her tail and shells in aqua and orchid. I then chose sequins that alter in the light between aqua and purples and placed them all round her. I use Basic Grey paper which looks like under the sea to mount her on. Lastly I made my shaker frame with acetate and coredinations cardstock. Lastly I embellished with real shells from the beach nearby, buttons and a gem. I placed the greeting 'The tide always turns' in the top corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenges: Let it Shine
