Anything Goes


I just wanted to pop in to share a card for the latest Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge.  It's the 5th week in the month, so that means the theme is "Anything Goes"!  ....which also means there's no excuse not to make a card!  

Here's my card: 

For this little scene, I used the Surf and Turf stamp set by Paper Smooches.  All the images and sentiment are included in the set.  The tree is a Memory Box die and the clouds are PTI. 

My favorite part of this card is the water.  I wanted it to be see-through and considered vellum, but I thought it would be a little too opaque.  I was going for the crystal clear Pacific ocean look, not the murky Atlantic ocean :)  Blue cellophane was just the right thing.

I added some goggly eyes to the crab and stickles to the starfish to finish off the card.  

I'll also be playing along with this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes. 

That's it for me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
