WMSC Sketch - Ahoy Matey! and a winner!

It's Saturday - again!   and time for the Waltzingmouse Saturday Sketch!!  We've got another sweet design from Belinda this week!
I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with this sketch  -  but finally came up with the following card!


A clean and simple card with lots of empty space at the top!   I die cut the waves, layering them on the card with foam tape.  I stamped the porthole and face, coloring them with copics and slipped it behind the wave.  To finish it off I stamped the little fish on the wave and the sentiment directly on the card!

All the stamps are from the sweet little set called  Half Pint Heroes.

So why don't you join us in the sketch challenge this week?!!   Check out all the details on the WMS Sketch Blog.

My card also works for the CAS-ual Friday challenge -  to have a fun edge on your card -  hopefully my waves qualify for that?!  and also for the SCS Free 4 All challenge -  Stripes!

Now I'm happy to announce the winner of my blog candy from last week's sketch post!   My DH  picked #17 as the winner and that was Velta!

This is fantastic Julia. What a creative idea to use the waves for your lines. Awesome job...and I'm so happy that your blog candy is going to someone who love WMS, but doesn't have any yet. Way to go Velta!
