Sea You Soon

Hi there! This is my second post for today. Click HERE to check out my Shop 52 Denver post (There's a GIVEAWAY involved!)!

Here's a card I made using the YUMMY color combo from the Just Us Girls Challenge 72, the AWESOME layout from Card Patterns Sketch Challenge 103, and the SUPER FUN Lawnscaping Challenge 4 (which is to use paper piecing)!!!


I had A TON OF FUN paper piecing these little sea critters! The turtle is my FAVORITE!!


I also added some Crystal Lacquer (Sakura Hobby Craft) to the bubbles to give them a more realistic bubble look!


The inside of the card says "Sea You Soon!" I'm thinkin' this will be the perfect card to send to our San Diego friends right before we visit them again!

So...what do you think??? Are you ready to play along in one or ALL of these challenges?

The JUGS72 Challenge ends tonight at 9:00pm EST, so there's still a little bit of time to play along!!! Click HERE for the deets!
