This card was done for a couple challenges. The first being for Alissa's challenge on her blog that can be found HERE It was a sketch with a beach theme. I just recently picked up this stamp from Great Impressions and I think its the cutest. The second challenge this is for is from Paper Crafts Moxie Fab World in honor of their new specialty issue Card Styles. You can find the details HERE.
When I was making this card I thought about the last episode of HGTV Design Star where they designed rooms around different flowers and how certain elements in the room represented movements of a flower, or the cluster of a flower etc and I kind of took that concept (not pertaining to flowers) with the textures on this card. I used D'vine Swirls to represent the ocean breeze because I wanted movement at the top of this card. I used tiny bubbles for the ocean itself which isn't the usual choice but I thought of fish and bubbles and well there you go. The scallop border represents the waves. The close to cocoa (SU) strip is respresenting the boardwalk so what better way to show that than with planks and thats why I chose to use the distressed stripes folder.
Hope you enjoyed this card and check out the challenges. Have a great day. Thanks for stopping by
