Whachadoin Wednesday: it's a ocean around here.

GOOD MORNING! It's Wednesday and Wednesday's mean WHachadoin Wednesday challenge over at SU INK & MORE. The challenge today is summer theme. Well, I have the most adorable set from SU INK, and I couldn't wait to use it. The name of this set is "Ocean Commotion", and it is soooo cute. As you can see, I used a bunch of the stamps from the set and wanted to use more of the fish and things, but it was starting to get really crowded. I just love the set.

My card was inspired by a card done by Nikki Estes. I am pretty happy with the way my card came out. Honestly, it too me 2 hours to make this card, and I spent probably 1 1/2 hours just coloring it, but it was so fun. I am not typically a scene kind of card maker, but I like the way this turned out. What do you think?

I also wanted to try to capture the sparkle I put on the fish. I think that was successful.
Well, that is all for me today. I have Beachitis (exhausted from to much vacation, and I am hoping to get a nap in today. Would love for you to play with us today. DO you have a beach card you need/want to make? Come play with us!

Have a great day and happy Creating!

Supplies
Stamps: Ocean Commotion from SU INK & MORE, Simple Stitches from CTMH
Papers; We R Memories DP, Coredinations cardstock, PTI white cardstock
Ink: copics, copic liner
Acces:Nesties,pop dots
