Frosted Designs Card Sketch Challenge #21

Hello!  Thank you for visiting today!  The very talented Ann Bacon has created another wonderful sketch for us to follow at Frosted Designs.  I love it so much that I will share two more cards following this sketch later this week!  Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Jillian Vance Design.  Please link up your take on the sketch which will make you eligible for the prize drawing at Frosted Designs.

As you can see, I shrank the center circle to make a 'water' card.  Making this version of a water card was very easy to do because I used one of the cards from CTMH's Sweet Surprises Card Kit.  It looks like this in kit form:

Normally, you would put candy or some other small items in the cup.  Instead, I filled one of the cups with aloe vera gel mixed with blue food coloring.  Years ago, I used hair gel in a baggie with similar (flatter) results.

The card base is a diecut kraft cardstock square shape with a pretty cut outline on the overlapping flap.  Part of the base was spritzed with Aquamarine Glimmer Mist. I then placed strips of different colored blue CTMH cardstock that were cut with Fiskar's Wave scissors. On top of these, I placed American Crafts Glitter Tape and a wavy glitter tape from Michael's Recollection's line. 
CTMH's Seaside Wooden Shapes

This card was oriented with the flap on the bottom to sort of mimic a sandy underwater beach. This part of the card was not spritzed with Glimmer Mist. I threaded canvas twill through the pre-punched flap and knotted it.  The ferns were made using Martha Stewart's clay that I had mixed with CTMH's Sweet Leaf re-inker and molded in one of her silicon molds. 

Please stop by tomorrow for a completely different look using the same sketch.

Thank you for visiting!
