Hi everyone!

Today we are sharing more inspiration for challenge #13.   You still have another week to play along, the challenge is open through May 14, 2015 at midnight EST.  Play along and you may just be the winner of a gift certificate to the YNS store!!!

We always give you 2 challenges to pick from, so choose your favorite…will it be the sketch or color combo?

This time around, the sketch has some banners, but remember you can always swap out shapes.  We just need to see that the basic sketch was your inspiration.

Or will the colors draw you in?

If you choose the color combo, be sure to use at least 3 colors and feel free to add in neutrals.  The names of the colors are based on Bazzill cardstock, but substitute whatever you have that is close to it.

I Spy YNS Saturday – Sea Creatures

Have you been day dreaming about a vacation?

Thinking about swimming in the surf?

How about dreaming of a vacation spent with smiling sea creatures swimming by?

While out and about this week, we came across a wonderful wave filled card by Nancy of the blog “The Summers on 49th Street”.  Nancy’s card features stamps from Sea Creatures Set One and Sea Creatures Sentiments.  The inlaid waves create a great base for the two fabulously colored smiling sea creatures.

ISStop on by Nancy’s blog to say hi and get more details on her card.
