Seaside Rocking Stepper Card

We are actually having quite a good summer this year for a change and seeing as I used to live by the sea, I thought I'd make a seaside-inspired card. 
This rocking stepper card is decorated using the Seaside Greetings kit designed by Alice Potter, available from Papercrafter magazine.

First I made the circular stepper card using a template from The Paper Craft Tutor.  It has a great rocking action when folded, which is perfect for the theme. 
Next I painted PVA glue on the little wooden fish, dipped them in the gold glitter and put them aside to dry. 
To decorate the back steps I used anchor patterned paper, first glueing then trimming to shape.
I glued a paper strip to the rectangular portion of the step, to represent the sky and the beach, then cut out the wave shapes from patterned paper and attached them in three levels with 3D foam pads to represent the sea. Once the fish were dry, I glued them in place on the 'sea' along with a boat shape. 
To finish off the seaside theme, I glued a beach hut to the 'sand'.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
