Digi Haven DT Card - Beach

It's Digi Haven challenge time again, and this fortnight our theme is "At the Beach", and our sponsor is Bugaboo, who generously gave the DT an image to work with for this challenge.  I'm a big fan of Bugaboo digis and had great fun colouring this cute, and rather cheeky looking monkey, with my Promarkers.  We'd love you to play along with your beach inspired projects, just be sure to use a digi and link back to us, it's as easy as that!
 I used a shaped blank from Craftwork Cards and coloured it with Distress Ink in Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.  I then used a tiny See Dees dotty stamp, and using the same inks as before, built up the sandy texture.
The papers are Papermania Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection, from the brights range, to which I've added kraft.  The pinwheel embellishment was made from a square of paper and  finished with a brad.  Some navy blue ribbon and some baker's twine threaded buttons finish off my summery card.
