Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Surf's Up!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

For my card I decided to create a little scene playing off of the colors of the surfboards and theme.  I started with PTI Mix and Mat Pretty Brackets.  I die cut three shades of blues.  I inlaid the colors starting with the darkest blue at the bottom and working to lightest color to create the look of ocean water and depth.   

I stamped, copic colored, and die cut three fish from the Keep Swimming stamp set.  I used some foam tape to pop up the fish.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto a strip of stampers select white card stock.  I cut a fishtail in one end and attached with two tiny stamples at the other end. 

 I scored the kraft card base.  I added the focal frame using some foam tape.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs 
for more inspiration!
