CSS Blog Hop!

It's time for another GinaK Designs Centerstage Spotlight blog hop!  Melissa gave us a great sketch to start from, and I just know there is gonna be lots of fabulous eye candy!

You should have arrived from Cheri's...if you missed the start, hop to the StampTV forum to catch the beginning.

My card is kinda simple and frou frou all at once!  I turned the sketch to portrait orientation, adding several layers of punched "waves" and tucking the whale from Asela's Make a Splash between them.  Couldn't catch the spray's sparkle in this photo!  A white satin bow adds a little interest to this sea of Ocean Mist Pure Luxury card stock.

Notes:
Make a Splash
Ocean Mist Pure Luxury card stock
Memento ink
Copic markers
satin ribbon

Enjoy visiting Geri's blog next!  Can't wait to see what she has in store for us!
