DYSU Challenge #74

Good Morning all you lovely Bloggers, 
It's time for another great challenge over at Do You Stack Up? and our theme this week is ........

We have three great sponsors for this challenge 

Melonheadz - $15 Gift Certificate

Sweet 'n' Sassy Stamps - $10- Gift Certificate

The Stamping Boutique - Winner's choice of 3 digis

I used this gorgeous image from The Stamping Boutique called "An Uncommon Friendship" for my little piece of inspiration this week - isn't this just a great image. I went with a circular card cut on my Grand Calibur and a variety of die cuts to resemble seaweed.

Here's a close-up showing the glitter I added for some lovely sparkle. I also used some glossy accents on the turtle, fish, flower in her hair and her top but as per, this is not showing up at all!!

Medium - Promarkers and Weathered Wood DI around scalloped edges
Papers - odds and ends from stash
Glitter - Glamour Dust
Charms, brad and ribbon - stash
Dies - Martha Stewart, DooHickey and Memory Box

I really hope you will join us for this fun challenge. The rest of the team have created some gorgeous inspiration for you, so do hop on over to DYSU and take a look.  That's all from me for now. I shall be back later with my Digi Doodle Shop Challenges card.
