On the beach with Frizzy Tilda for simply Magnolia

I don't think it's a secret that I love, love, love frizzy Tilda she's just sooo cute!!! :)
This fortnight over at Simply Magnolia we're all off to the beach!! with our fabby challenge of

On the beach!!

I masked no less than 4 stamps to create this scene! and was really pleased with it, and relatively happy with my colouring, and then...... eek what to do with the rest of my card! I decided to keep it simple, and truthfully I wish I hadn't added the banner, does anybody else find this, that it's actually putting the card together that is the problem?!?! I could colour till the cows come home but then find it so difficult to put the images into a card!!  It's not even colour matching the papers, I have learned my lesson with that one!! I nearly always chose my papers first now, it's embellishments that confuse the life out of me!! ;)
anyhoo the challenges I would like to enter are:

Tilda's Town - anything goes
7 Kids challenge - anything goes
Magnolia Mania - Summer
papertake weekly - jolly holiday
Have a great week my lovelies!
