Here is a card I made for the color challenge on Mommy Scraps. I took her theme and "awesome" birthday sentiment and made one of my own. In addition, I had inspiration from Jeanne's front flip card she made using the D'Vine Swirl cuttlebug and fish theme. This one is a little different than the usual card I make. It took me a little out of my comfort zone, which (I guess) is a good thing.

I mainly used the following CTMH colors: breeze, ocean, orange, citrus leaf. I sponged the bottom part of the card in cocoa, chocolate and desert sand to make the bottom of the ocean or aquarium (whichever you prefer). I used the June stamp of the month, With Love, for the ocean plants, etc. I love how other CTMH consultants use this flower set for other themes. In addition, I sponged the breeze cardstock with breeze and ocean ink for the water. After using the cuttlebug folder, I highlighted some of the waves with my white gel pen. I hope you like this one!

I finished this card with eyelets and orange sassy strands. Wow! I hardly ever use eyelets any more. I had the perfect color to go with the ocean cardstock in my never-ending stash. LOL! AND I got to use my crop-a-dile. YAY!


Happy Stamping!

What a fun card, Kim! I'm inkspired by you, yet again! You did great.

I'd love to hear some of the ways the gals are using With Love...

Thanks for sharing!!
