Fun at the Beach

I'm multitasking again! I'm actually really tickled with how this card turned out. I think it would make a cute kids card.:) What do you think?

Challenges -

The Pink Elephant Challenge #54-Ribbon

Die Cuts R Us Challenge 26-No Designer Papers

2 Cute Rubber Stamps 1st Challenge

The Happy Crabby digi is from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps, it can be downloaded from this page. Isn't he the cutest? I love him!

I tore the Bazzill Basics cardstock to look like waves, then used some white ink on the edges. I made the little fish and octopus out of red ribbon and black brads, using a white gel pen to make the eyes. The digi was colored with Prismacolor and Copic markers.

Thanks for looking! Hope you like it.:)
