Thank You

 HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! This is the first challenge for 2015. It is also a prize week! Welcome and I am so glad you are here. Be sure to check out some of the new links above. Not much has changed, the most notable change is that the winner will now be random. The top 2 will be the hostess favorites, all 3 will be posted on the Mod Squad Pinterst board.
The challenge this week is to make a Thank you card. You can use any vendor stamps and supplies. But if you use at least one of the sponsors images you get a second entry (if you have any trouble with this feature please comment or contact me...I am testing it:-)) 

  *NOTE* to get 2 entries simply put the letter MSC in front of the "Link Title".  


For this card I masked the shells to develop the scene. The background was done with watercolor, shells with Copics.

Products used:
Gina K Designs Under The Sea - seaweed and fishes
Gina K Designs Life’s A Beach- the tiny shell
  Gina K Designs Gifts From The Sea - the shells

  1. Tried to do second entry but not sure of where to add MSC. Do we do 2 links?

  2. Great card! Love the colouring of the shells and seaweed. To get two entries do we post twice? One with the MSC and one without? Thanks.
