Biscuit Fishy Friends

Hi everyone, as it's STILL raining I thought I'd make a summer card to remind myself what the weather should be like at this time of year. I've used a Pollycraft image called Biscuit Fishy Friends...
 I've coloured using Promarkers and used yellow glitter as sand. I've added glossy accents to the mask and the bag with the fish in. The yellow backing paper is froma Colorbok Pastel Embellishment Punch-out Pack which I've had for years. I've distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz tool. I added the red and white striped paper as a compliment to the bear's shirt (and it made me think of deck chairs). I added a tag and a couple of suitable embellishments from my stash to finish off.
 Hope you like him and that he brightens up a dull day. I'd like to enter this for the following:-
