Playing in Challenges

I took some time today to play in a few challenges in blogland.

I started with  Dazzling Diva #25.  They had a fun nautical inspiration photo and it gave me a chance to use my Spellbinders Sea Creatures [discontinued], and get a perfect card for my sailor son! :)

Yes, I am using sheet metal from Add a Little Dazzle Boutique.  This stuff is so awesome!  I had no idea the different ways you can use this product.  I love the effect when you sand off the color.

I'm also entering this into Keep It Simple #40; Maritime.  I might be pushing it with this card, but really it was "simple" to make.

I went on to play in the CAS(E) #76 sketch.  Absolutely loved this sketch and made it literal!

I used my hexagon dies and circles dies. My sentiment is from Simon Says Flower Friend.

I am entering both these into the Simon Says Challenge; die crazy.

Thanks for stopping by~

Vicki, these are both wonderful but I have to say that the first one would be perfect for people that live near a lake!!! hahaha

Both cards are fabulous. I love the turtle and other sea animals on the first card. The hexagon on the second card is cute! Thank you so much for joining us at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog. :)

Oh wow - two stunners today, Vicki! Love that sheet metal on the first card - what a cool product! And your second card is so perfectly clean and graphic and I love the patterned papers you used! Thanks for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!
