Summer fun

I was determined to get some crafting time today and I haven't done too bad after a few housework jobs.
There are a few challenges at the moment around summer (yeah - where did that go?) so I thought this CC design would be perfect. I cut around her with a nestie then sponged the background with blue and brown. I found two flowers that I thought looked a bit beachy (!) do not know where they came from(??) and added some charms. I started with a blue brad but the other charm had a hole too small to get one through so had to change to silver. (Note to self check before piercing and securing next time.........) I also went over her glasses with a clear gel pen.
The background paper is actually a silk paper which was part of a scrapbook album.
