So a few challenges were asking for "blue" and then there was a CAS and one thing led to another again...
I side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5"h. Created a stencil from some paper for my center rectangle and sponged Distress "Broken China" & "Faded Jeans". Stamped the water splash (Inkadinkado "Wellspring") using "Chipped Sapphire" and clear embossed.
Stamped the "Thanks" (Quietfire Design) using "Mermaid Lagoon" and clear embossed.
Dry embossed around the rectangle with Sizzix "Swirls" embossing folder.
Created an eCut file for the seahorse (Designs By Ryn "Sea Creatures 1" set), cut from Soft Finish 85# cardstock, stamped with the mermaid and embossed with Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Turquoise Shimmer" embossing powder, colored with Pan Pastels. Adhered to card front.
Added various colors of blue rhinestones and then added a line around the rectangle using the mermaid Distress Marker.
