Mojo Monday #446 | Card Sketch Challenge

Hello and thanks for stopping by.

Today I have a super cute birthday card I made for my nephew to share with you as well as my entry for this weeks Mojo Monday #446 Card Sketch Challenge.

This weeks Mojo Monday challenge was to create a card using this card sketch:

My card was created with my nephew in mind, so I have used a fun sea theme.

Here is my card:

The card base is Whisper White, and I have layered another strip of Whisper White over some Real Red cardstock which runs through the middle of the card.

The sea themed stamps are part of the Sea Street stamp set (which is sadly retiring soon, so grab it now before it's gone). The ink colours I have used in my card are Night of Navy, Coastal Cabana & Real Red.

The stamped shapes at the top of the card have been punched using the 3/4" x 15/16" Oval punch and some dimensionals added to make them stand out. The star fish near the octopus have been partly fussy cut and glued down.

The strip of flags is part of the co-ordinating Maritime designer series paper from the 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Catalogue (however is currently available and discounted on the clearance rack - check the link below and grab a bargain). The Party hat & star on top is also part of the Maritime designer series paper - I just used a scrap and cut out a hat and punched the star out with a circle hole punch.

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Celebrate Today stamp set.
