In the Water

Hello All

For today I am playing along with Create with Connie and Mary, Little Tangles and Colour Q. Their challenge this week is a sketch challenge... Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Ombre effect creating a sense of the ocean
The three strips of white seems to have a nautical feel
The seashells are just perfect for this card.
The sentiment is so cool and a happy accident. When I stamped it the sentiment
came out splotchy but then I thought it looked great. So I just colored the rest in with PrismaColor pencils.
Entering Challenges:
Creating with Connie and Mary: CCMC395
ColourQ: cQc #331
Little Tangles: Challenge 66- Ombre

This card reminds me of Seaside Florida. I have said it before but it is one of the most beautiful places. The blue of the water is just remarkable. The colors associated with this card brings back memories of Seaside on 30A! If you haven't been there I think it might be worth a Google search.. I think you will be impressed as I certainly am.. Now I get to look out my window at the gray day and snow... Spring is coming, spring is coming, spring is coming!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting me.. I really do appreciate it! If you'd like take time to leave a comment!!

All the Best,
