Surprise Challenge at the ODBD Forum!

Hello, everyone! Today is the 5th Tuesday of the month, which means "SURPRISE CHALLENGE" over at the ODBD Forum! Since there aren't many months with five Tuesdays, it seems like leap year! :D The 5th Tuesday Surprise Challenge this time around is to use stickers on your card, layout, or altered item. Any type of stickers will do..... 3-d stickers, Magenta or Flower Soft outlines or borders, create your own sticker with a Xyron, pearl or gem stickers, and so on...use your imagination! Come on over and play!!

The stickers I am using are from American Traditional Designs, called "Seashore" I picked these up at the Covered Bridge Festival last year....at the time I didn't know what I would do with them, until Our Daily Bread designs came out with the most awesome stamps for February with an ocean theme! Yay!!

The scene was created by using scratch paper for masking and then the ocean and sky were colored with sponge daubers and ink pads. The sand dune was created by tearing, sponging, and layering two pieces of Crumb Cake cardstock. The sun was sponged inside the punchout of a circle punch. Hubby was proud that I didn't totally fill up the open space....I was tempted to add a bow in the corner, but resisted!!

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'The Sea' (available February 1);
Cardstock: SU Cameo Coral , Crumb Cake, and Whisper White;
Ink: Stazon Timber Brown, SU Cameo Coral, Calypso Coral, Barely Banana, Crumb Cake;
