C4C194 - You're Swell!

It's time for another fun challenge at Crazy for Challenges!

This week the challenge is Marine Life! Show us your projects featuring sea creatures, boats, anything marine related!

Nautical is SO hot right now, and I was super excited to make my first Reverse Confetti card!

Here's my card...
I stamped the little creatures and tucked them in between lots of layers of a wave die. I always put banners at the top of my cards, so wanted to try it at the bottom of a panel - I like it! I left a couple of the elements to overlap the card sides, if you're worried about the card fitting in an envelope, just trim a little off one side to compensate. The sketch is the July SFYTT.

I shopped at i {heart} papers for my supplies today! The stamps are from Reverse Confetti - Happy Harbour, the paper is Down by the Shore - Fancy Pants, and I've also used some fun hemp twine!

Here's a close up of my main panel...

Here's the inside of my card...

There are SO many adorable stamps in this set, I couldn't resist using more of them on the inside!

Now it's time to go see all the fab inspiration from the design team, happy hopping!
