Wish You Were Here!

My plans for today with my niece and nephew, were postponed until tomorrow, so I've been crafting  in front of the fan instead. This is the card I've made 

The first thing I did was sponge a water and sky scene on a white base card. I then stamped the wood grain on some brown card to make a beach groin, and cut a hole towards the top. I then cut a white ring with Nesties, and pieced together the sentiment from various stamps, and coloured two areas in red so it looked like a safety ring. This was placed on 3D pads around the hole in the wood, which was then stuck over the base also on 3D pads. I randomly stamped the flourish in white on some blue card and fussy cut half of it so it looked like a wave crashing against the groin, and this was stuck along the bottom of the card. I added a Sea gull sitting on the ring, and finished with some pearls for bubbles.

I am entering it in these challenges :
