PTI Inspiration photo
 My Card ~
I don't have the "Salt Air Flora and Fauna" Stamps/Die sets yet
but I wanted to have a sea-life and ocean theme, so I used my 
What the Doodle: Waves here to mimic the inspiration photo.
Used every blue/green colored inks I own on the water and sky, 
the pops of red are on the sailboat and the base card.  
The happy birthday die is cut from glitter paper and those cute fish  charms are from Michael's Crafts which I've been hoarding forever and needed them onto a card~this challenge seemed like the perfect time.  😊

  1. What a great take on the inspiration photo Helen! Your puffy clouds look like they'd turn up waves like that and your little sailboat and fish being tossed along the waves are just perfect. It's always good when we can clean out some of our hoarded stash too. ;0)

  2. Cute card with your fish "surfing" the waves. Those clouds look like storm clouds are approaching, probably the cause of those big waves!

  3. Beautiful summer scene with the pretty sail boat riding the waves. Love the little fish swimming along side. Really sweet card!

  4. WOW how fun Helen, I have that die I have never used it. You have inspired me. I love how this came out. when I was thinking of my design I was thinking of waves at the bottom, but I went in a different direction. I just love what you did and your clouds in the sky are fantastic, You ship color and floating fish just complete the look-I LOVE IT!!!

  5. Love those ocean swells with the little sailboat floating on top Helen! Cute fish charms and wonderful sponged clouds!

  6. Cute card Helen!! Fantastic job on you sky!!

  7. Love the created scene and detailing! Terrific design!

  8. Clever & cute--love it, Helen!

  9. I totally get about hoarding those cute fishies! It's hard but I'm glad you did, because they look adorable amongst the waves~

  10. Cute, CUTE card Helen!! Another one of my favorite sets that you used and love all your beautiful clouds too! And the fish charms? PERFECT it!! :0)
