Simply *wicked* ocean

My *wicked* awesome friend Jenn Shurkus is posting every day during the month of July (wow! I was in awe of her before and now I'm even more so). She asked a bunch of her crafty friends (me being one of the lucky ones) to play along with her one day out of the month and today is my day (in more ways than one...*wink*).

The theme is summer/ocean. I love summer - the sun, being outside, hanging with friends. I love the ocean just as much - the sound of it, the look of it, the creatures that live in it, the beach that it crashes on to, all the great stamps that are created about it (hee, hee). So an ocean themed card it was to be... but which stamps to use (I have several...surprise, surprise)? I decided to dust off some older ones and pair them with one of my favourite colour combinations....and this was the result....

ETA - you could get your hands on this card and donate to a worthy cause.  Jenn is having a silent auction for this card as well as a bunch of other fabulous crafty art projects.  For all the details see here.

Hope you like it- actually quite happy with it. Thanks a bunch for stopping by. Hope you are having a *wicked* summer.

p.s. it is mere coincidence that this colour combo is so similar to the Summer Card Camp Colours... I whipped this baby up almost a month ago...
