Sea Street Shaker

Welcome to a chilly Sunday evening in Melbourne. A real Four seasons in One day kind of day - just like we are famous for having :-) And so when the rain started it was the perfect time to join in some challenges and make a card - now that we have a little more time with Sally the dog needing less intensive nursing :-)

Today's card is for TWO challenges :  to "Just Add a shaker" at Just Add Ink and the fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

Here is the card:

Doesn't the DSP just look like little waves?

In retrospect the window could've been a little higher….hence I felt the need to add the Twine to the top of the card.

The window is filled with a little mixture of Dazzling Diamonds glitter and some silver and blue sequins. And the little fish are stamped to replicate one of the layers in the sketch.

Card stock: Real Red, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Maritime
Inks: Island Indigo, Coastal Cabana, Real Red
Stamps: Sea Street, Happiest Birthday (Retired)
Accessories: Circle Framelits, Hexagon punch, Acetate sheet, Coastal Cabana Twine, Dazzling Diamonds, Silver and blue sequins (Non-SU)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and I hope you have time to check out the two challenge blogs for inspiration as they have some amazing cards for you : Just Add Ink and Freshly Made Sketches.

Happy stamping until next time,
