the Creative Chick 10th Blogiversary Celebration!

hiiiii!!!!
i am so so so so excited for Jenn as she celebrates 10 years on her blog!!! and not just 10 years of blog posts...10 years of inspiration, sharing, blog hops and FUN! what a journey!!

i'm even MORE excited to participate with Jenn on her blog in honor of this celebration!! :D
yay!! it was almost impossible to pick just one of Jenn's projects to be inspired by! but i KNEW it had to be beach related!! i know how much she loves the beach, and i just wanted it to make her happy when she saw it! those were my requirements! ha!

i chose this card, you can find here!

and here's my card!


i used the adorable Float my Boat stamp set from Lawn Fawn! 
i wanted to incorporate a lot of the same colors and elements in my card! i kept the vellum, and made waves with the Ocean Wave Borders Die and then kept the pops of red on the sail boat and the diagonal stripes with that fun little strip on the side! 


i wanted to keep that 'brown' texture from her beautiful rope on the card, so i added some wood veneer stars (and i had to add some wink of stella to them...i had to!! ha!).
oh, and that background was created with Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress paints! i simply added the paint to my kraft mat, spritzed with water, and swiped my card! easy water background!

so that's my card! now it's YOUR turn!! 
Jenn is hosting a challenge this month in celebration! you can find all of the rules here, and play along for your chance to win something from these amazing companies below!!!! how cool!!
