Ocean of Thanks!

Ocean of Thanks - Front
This card is purposely made to enter Lawn Fawn's World Card Making Day Challenge which I think this is the first time Lawn Fawn organize a challenge through its own blog. As the requirement of the challenge need this card to be send to someone physically which I decided to post it to my best friend.

Card Patterns Sketch 135
This card layout is inspirational from Card Patterns Sketch 135 sketch/challenge as shown above but I decided to take a total revamp of the sketch as explained below.

Close-up : Top portion of the card
The top portion of the card, it is the ocean and I decided to have turtle, fish and hermit on the scene so that the middle of the card is focus for the sentiment. I do not have any "thanks" sentiment from Lawn Fawn. Thus, I used "thanks" from "thanksgiving" from Lawn Fawn Hats Off to You. :P I added some gems to resemble the bubbles from the sea animals.

Close-up : Dimensional layers
As per the sketch, I should have ribbon or scalloped strip on the bottom of the card with three (3) circles. However, like I inform earlier, I decided to revamp the sketch. Thus, I turned the strip into three (3) layers of ocean bottom or sand which I dimension the layers. I purposely tear each of the layers so that it looks more like ocean bottom or sand.

Close-up : Ocean grasses
As for the circles, I decided to stamp three ocean grasses to represent the circle. I really like the outcome whereby it is really looks like ocean!

Theme : Ocean
Title : Thanks
Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : None

I forgot that actually I had Lawn Fawn "thank you" sentiment which is a free "thank you" stamp set with purchase. I only realize that I got this stamp set when I search through my stamp album! What a waste!
