Sea Swept

Hi all!  How's this week going for everyone?  Mine is slowing coming to an end and heading into an action packed weekend filled with family from out of town and lots of fun!  But before that can begin I've got a totally fun new sketch challenge to share from Some Odd Girl.  I had a big layover coming home from Vegas last week so I carried on my Copics and some images to kill time while I was waiting in the airport and this Under the Sea Mae image is what I ended up with.  I waited until I got home to do the background however and wasn't quite sure how it was going to turn out, but in the end I'm pretty happy with it :)
So here is the awesome sketch we have to work with- such a fun one no?  I love how much room for interpretation there always is...
 
And here's my card...
 I obviously flipped it and added some more bits and pieces to it :)  I was super happy with myself because I even used the two sea shell accent stamps that come in the Under the Sea Mae set to make my own background paper!  
I hope that you like the sketch- for some more stunning inspiration you've gotta stop by the SOG blog to check out what my other teamies did- they will knock your socks off!  I sure hope that you'll play along with us- you have all month and all you have to do is use a SOG image and follow the sketch...if we reach 50 players there will even be an extra prize in the mix so how can you go wrong?
Thanks for popping by to visit me- I hope that everyone has a fabulous day!
