Just finished this card last night & thought I'd enter it in "Less is More" http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com.au/ as their challenge is anything "Aqua". Ok, well for one it's aqua coloured, second it was simple to put together, third it became a play on words... think of the star sign we are in at the moment??????? ok, I made it sound a bit like "Aquarius"... very apt, huh? Oh yeah & I made the card look like a shop front.
Yes, I know parts are a little lame, but hey we all gotta start somewhere, right?
I found an offcut of Aqua card, used to nesting rectangles in different sizes to cut out the door & window. I then had a couple of offcut corregated card laying around so added them with some foam dots to make them look like they are awnings of a shop.
I made this card using my computerized embroidery machine for the chicken, then frayed the edges. Glue tacked it onto an A4 size Stampin' Up! new In Colour- Island Indigo, fairly simple, but that's why I did it like that.... I left the base vacant so when it was required for use I could put the sentiment on then. I also decided to place this card into "Less is More" for their weekly challenge of "Aqua" being the design for this week. You can see this card at http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com.au/
Enjoy, there are a large collection for this colour this week.

Just having a bit of a play around, I found that a box that had note paper in it had fallen apart so used it as a template & made another one in a smaller template I made as well. I used some bits & pieces I had left from another project for the box with the birds.
The other box has the map of the earth on 3 sides & a compass on the front, these stamps are from "the Open Sea", a new set out at this time. I amtrying to think of other things to do with my sets for a change. I hope you enjoy looking at them... I certainly enjoyed making them!
