I will go down with this ship... (CIC261)

Before I get into our new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations, I feel the need to explain my title. Have you ever had an idea in your head and just couldn't get it out as a card? This is one of those projects for me. I knew what I wanted to create and I just couldn't get it to come together. So after the FOURTH attempt, I decided that this was it. Ready or not, I was putting it out there and stickin' by it. :)

This week are sponsored by Meljen's Designs


They are offering our randomly drawn winner FOUR images! Wow.

Thank you, Meljen!

Our challenge for you this week is NAUTICAL.

Nautical Cupcake Wrappers from Styling the Moment
Here's my take...

I got to play with Lots O Love Octopus, and it's he a cutie? :) I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut him out. (This is card number 4; 3rd colored image used; 2 time fussy cut.) I stickled the hearts with Christmas Red Stickles. My designer paper is Fancy Pants' Down By the Shore collection. I love it but still I had a hard time picking out which papers went with my vision. I've had this paper FOREVER, and I am desperately trying to work through my "collection" of papers. The circles are all cut using my Nestabilities Small and Large Circle dies. The card base and all mats are Neenah Desert Storm cardstock.



Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy. :) 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Stampin' Stylin' Inkspiration: May - Sketch
Addicted to CAS #38 - Off the Edge
The Pink Elephant #250 - Nautical
