By the Seaside!

First, I'd like to wish you all a very happy 2011. I hope you had a fantastic festive season, and that the return to work wasn't/isn't too traumatic! I go back tomorrow, and I know I'll miss the time at home.

I got some lovely unmounted stamps for Christmas, and I'll be using the rest of them soon, although it has to be said that with a strong fairy/mermaid theme to them, they're not terribly suited for cards for men. So, when I popped into Hobbycraft and found some of their mounted stamps very reduced, I had a good look through them and found this gem.
It was actually one of the smaller stamps they had, and it's bigger than I've shown here as I've cut it off at the side to make the result square. The image is coloured with Promarkers and then mounted and framed. I've used one of my Christmas presents - a Martha Stewart border punch - on some Co'ordinations Whitewash card that I've embossed and sanded and finished it with some sticky gems.
I'd like to enter this card into th following challenges:
Papertake Weekly where anything goes,
Lothian Crafts where anything goes,
Tuesday Throwdown where they're looking for embossing (co-ordinations border)
Paper Sundaes where they're looking for something new (stamp)
