Love and Kisses

Wow!  It is already time for another challenge at the Crafty Gals Corner!  I cannot believe it is Wednesday already!  I just went back to work and the days are just flying by for me.  This week our challenge is anything goes.  We know how much you love them, so we have one anything goes each month.

This week I used Sea Turtle Kiss from Aurora Wings for my project.  What a sweet little mermaid!  She was colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Silhouette.  I wanted something sea themed for her so I cut out a shell shaped easel card using my Silhouette Cameo.  I just copied, flipped, and welded the shell shape to make the card base and then cut out a single shape from a pearly card stock.  All of the sea weed and coral were cut using the Silhouette as well.  The coral was traced from a line drawing of coral I found.

This area has a large sea turtle population.  They nest on the beaches around here and there is a large volunteer force that makes sure all the hatchlings make it to the sea unharmed.  It is a wonderful sight to behold and I hope to see it in person one day!

This week you have a chance to win a $15 gift certificate from our fabulous sponsor Aurora Wings!  Mitzi's designs are to die for!  You can see for yourself by clicking the badge below.

It's anything goes so why not play along for the chance to win?!

Aww, this card is totally adorable. Love how you made it a clam-shaped easel card. I love the beautiful colours you used and all the "under the sea" embellies. Beautiful!
Wishing you a wonderful day.
