A relaxing day

Good morning folks
Something a little different today - not Christmas or anniversary for a change.
I began by covering a 6 inch square card blank with turquoise centura pearl. I then cut the largest Tonic layering square from a paper from LOTV's Up, up and away paper pad, cut a strip of another of the papers, matted that onto turquoise centura pearl and attached it to the square. I cut a narrow strip of another paper from the pad and punched one edge with an EK success punch. I attached this to the square and then attached the whols thing to the card base.  
The image is from LOTV and is called Lazy Afternoon (ST005). I have coloured the image with the following Promarkers - 
  • hat, socks and shirt - oasis, rock pool and island lagoon
  • shorts and shoes - tan, cinnamon and cocoa
  • skin - satin, blush, dusky pink and coral
  • hair - saddle brown
  • tree and grass - moss, marsh green, olive green, burnt sienna and walnut
  • newspaper - ivory and pastel beige
  • sky - pastel blue
I cut the image out with a Spellbinder's oval nestie, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and matted onto another oval of turquoise centura pearl. I attached it onto the card base with foam pads.
To finish I added a sentiment from LOTV's sentiments to fit a scroll stamp set which I cut out with a Die-namics mini tabs die.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - 

Thank you for stopping by.
