Cute Card Thursday ~ Vacation/travel

This is my card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge which this week is a
vacation/travel theme.
We have been given a fabulous Magnolia 'Paris Tilda' stamp to give away this week so the holiday theme was very obvious to us!
I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to use this fabby new stamp from Sugar Nellie, it is Hamish and Maggie 'rockpool fun'. I really enjoyed colouring this one!

Supplies: Cardstock ~ Cream textured, brown and olive, white creative smooth
DP ~ Basic Grey 'Archaic'
Stamp ~ Sugar Nellie 'Rockpool fun'
Embellishments ~ Love Elsie ' toby' sticker, brads, ribbon and seahorse charm from stash
