Making waves with the Scallop Border Punch...

This card is for a swap I am in at the Stampin Up! convention this year.  We are suppose to be making kidIMG_2533 cards.  Since I  don't have any kids of my own I thought this would be a good chance to make up some fun cards.  This idea has been brewing in my head for a while with the new scallop border punch.   When I would punch out the scallop border I kept seeing waving also so I decided to make a card using the scallop border and the scraps from when you punch it!   So what do you think???  

 

I chose to use the new in colors Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss.  I stamped the main IMG_2538image and then cut it out and mounted it with stampin dimensionals.  I also put some dimension under one of the waves and then used the white gel pen to make some white caps.  You can't tell to much from the picture but I also chalked a little blue for the sky along with the yellow for the sun.  Hope you like it!!  :)

I am still waiting for my punch to arrive... I can hardly wait to try this. My younger son's birthday is in August, I'm doing bottle invitations for him and will use Ahoy Matey. It will be so cool to make this waves...
