Welcome to another Red Hot Stampers sketch challenge. Well, this week is a special one because it's our One Year Anniversary! We want to celebrate it by doing something special, and to show our appreciation to those of you who check out our blogs we are giving away blog candy! If you leave a comment on the Red Hot Stampers blog your name will be entered into the drawing. If you leave a comment and a link to your take on our sketch you will be entered into the drawing two times. :) So that means you need to go check out the Red Hot's blog here for a chance to win. Now onto today's cards. Yes, I did two. I made my first card because I was thinking waves and water when I saw the sketch. However I felt it was just way too dark. Yes, the card is much darker than the picture of it. It's actually kind of cool, but it made me think of pirates! lol So, I had to brighten things up a bit...
...and this is the card I came up with. Much brighter! It was a lot easier to make too. I hope you enjoyed both of my cards. Don't forget to check out the Red Hot's for a chance to win blog candy.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

How to get the wave on the card...
I took a scrap piece of paper and cut a wave in it about 2/3's of the way down to use as my template. I then placed the two pieces of paper about 3/4" apart like this and attached to my card stock with dotto...
The part you want to sponge is the Very Vanilla portion. I used one color on my first sample and three different colors on my second sample. Hope this makes sense to anyone who wants to give it a try! :)
