Makin' Waves!

Well, I thought I would jump in on a few challenges this week.
Die Cuttin Diva's has a sketch challenge with a kids theme and Fantabulous Cricut has a fun water theme challenge.

So I combined the two into this cutie.
The little swimmer is a cut file from the talented Lisa over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. She has started her own online store with graphics and svg files. This little swimmer is from her store here.

Here's how I did it....
Base card is A2 size
Pattern paper from My Minds Eye
All other paper from my scrap box
Mat/layers cut at 3.75' from Elegant edges
Little Swimmer SVG file from Prettypapergraphics.com
Sentiment from CTMH Making Waves stamp set
Cuttlbug embossing folder seeing spot
Buttons from my stash
