Winter Escape By The Sea

Welcome to a new challenge! Whoo Hoo! Are you  just sick, sick, sick of the frigid cold temps and nasty weather we've had at the end of Winter, here in the states? I know I am! If you're like me, you are thinking of a nice warm place to get away! Well, let us help you with that - We have the perfect challenge for you this fortnight! We want to see your Winter Vacation Getaway Challenge at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges. Of course, if you live somewhere other than the states or live somewhere with hot sticky weather, then you may be dreaming of the opposite and wishing for a colder, snowy getaway - And that's okay, too! We want to see your getaway creations - Whether they're warm, cold or just downright hot! Whatever getaway you are wishing for, come show us and play along, this time, at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges! Our challenges run every two weeks, Saturday through Friday - So you have plenty of time to play along!

There are always some awesome prizes to be won.  At Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges, we are lucky enough to have several kind, thoughtful, generous sponsors, each fortnight. This means many chances to win, for playing along! There are also DT picks each challenge, so you also have the chance to have the honor of being spotlighted!

This time, we are offering up prizes from these super sweet sponsors:

Wow, lots of great prizes to be won, don't you agree! Remember, you have two weeks, starting today, to play along! Get out your crafting supplies, get your mojo going, and start creating, so you can link up with us, for your chance to win, at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges!

While you're here, I'd love for you to stick around just a little longer, while I tell you about my card. My card uses the image set, Under The Sea Set, from Digital Delights by Looby Lou. I used the background provided with the set, then fussy cut around the mermaid, octopus and little fishy, and used foam mounting tape to add them to the background.  All images have been colored with Promarkers. There's lots of dimension going on here, to create this 3D underwater scene! I only used one scrap of designer paper on this card - A really tough task for me, trust me, as I do love my patterned papers! I used a piece of fuzzy lime green scalloped trim across the bottom of the card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
