BOO.....From Beyond The Sea

 Back again!

I wanted to play along in the NEW Challenge Blog

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge Blog

 hosted by my dear friends, Darlene and Diane.  

You probably recognize their names as they are the 

Double D in the Double D Challenge Blog.

Their new Challenge is Anything Goes Halloween Challenge.

I will also enter this card into these Challenges:

Simon Says Monday, Spooky.

Simon Says Wednesday, Make It Sparkle.

I'm sure you all know I live in a quaint little beach town on Cape Cod.  

Sooooo with Halloween fast approaching I wanted to make a beachy style card, 

here's what I came up with.   

I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets; 
Beyond Baskets 2 and By The Sea 2.

My crab is by Cheapo Dies.  He is layered, yellow and red card stock 
and topped in black glitter paper for some fun sparkle!
MFT Wavy Edge Border dies to make my waves, cut from several shades 
of blues and greens to mimic the sea.  
MFT Snow Drift dies to make my sand, 2 layers.  Added sponge ink.
Alphabet dies for BOO, colored with Copic Markers 
and coated in Clear Embossing Powder for some shine. 
Amalgam Black ink.

Foam Dots for dimension.

This was really fun to make!


Thanks for swimming by.
