Smelling the Salt of the Ocean

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Kelli Hull our challenge hostess for February, finishes off the month with one last challenge. 

Today we will celebrate the two Zodiac signs of February... Aquarius and Pisces.  They have something in common... both are water signs!  So our challenge this week is to make a card with a water scene!!!

For my card today I decided to create a pop up card using the Beach Chair Pop Up Card die and Rocky the Crab designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I thought it might get a little lonely for Rocky being on the beach on his own so I die cut the Beach Chair Pop Up twice on my card side by side and gave Rocky a girlfriend .... Rockene!

Along the bottom edge of the card I added some waves using the Beach Edges die set. Along the back part of the card I added three palm trees and also some sand.

I thought Rocky needed to say something nice to his girlfriend, so I used the speech bubble from the Rectangle Accordion card set and computer generated the sentiment.

I kept the front of the card fairly simple, as the inside in the focal point of this card. I added another crab, sand & waves and a sentiment.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
