Beside the Seaside with Artful Time

Well the weather we are having is anything but seaside weather even so we do walk along the prom, prom, prom most days and so does a neighbour who will be 65 next month so I made him this card for the Artful Times Challenge

The beach hut stamp is a digital one that I have had for a long time--I even think that Von sent me the link to get it so quite appropriate as she has set the challenge theme. I added the grasses and the do not disturb.

The background was made with a small lighthouse stamp and little fish and the sun cut out and coloured  before being raised up a bit on the card. Stamped the text and the big seagull and that's  it finished.
 Maybe I will add a 6 and a 5 in the top left hand corner though I don't think he really wants to be reminded about his age lol.
