Catch A Wave!

My friends, JANIS and SUSAN and I decided to challenge each other again!  Such a wonderful way to craft with my friends although we all live in separate states.

So the challenge was my idea....well...sort of.  I have been bitten by the summertime bug.  During the summer, I think of lightening bugs, sunshine, green grass, hot summer breezes and watermelon.  I also think of all those people who are deciding where they are going to go on vacation this year before school starts in late August.

So....my suggestion was....Make a card using the colors of the ocean.  If you think about it...that would cover a wide variety of colors to choose from.  There is sand, green seas, blue seas, white frothy waves, seaweed, coral, and all kinds of fish and mammals...sea shells...and jellyfish.

Here is the card I created:


The background paper was the idea for the card.  It has bright, tropical colors with surf boards in bright colors inserted throughout the paper.  The waves were cut from the Creative Memories Traveler cartridge along with the surf board.  The sentiment, "Splash!" is from Mary's Fun in the Sun stamp set.


All of Mary's stamp sets are available HERE.

Why don't you challenge someone?  It is so much fun!  Have a crafty afternoon!
