DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #44 At the Beach

Challenge #44
It is time for another challenge at Lexi's CreationsThe challenge this fortnight is to create a project  with an 'at the beach' theme: Take a quick trip over to  Lexi's site , you might want to join the fun!

See main challenge blog for sponsor details:

I choose  one of Lexi's wonderful images called 'J.T'  and brayered a background of water and sand. Added a little bit of interest  in the top left corner and it was done. I like the result even if my brayering looks like it is bringing on a storm. Oh well, storms do brew:)
