Sketch Challenge with 'Ocean Commotion'

I've managed a little stamping time for myself. And what better way to get started by joining in with Makeesha's weekly Challenges. Once again she is motivating us with her fabulous weekly challenges which I love participating in! This week is a sketch challenge pictured below. I'm working on samples from the stamp set Ocean Commotion, so I thought I'd use the sketch for a card and 8x8 scrapbook page.
I'm beginning to like this set alot, considering I was def. not going to get this one. But with the amount of beach photo's I take, I know I will use it lots for scrapbooking!

The Spring Break DP have such a great colour combination, I went with those and used some of the striped paper in the pack. I've stamped the 'seahorse' and 'fish' images onto Whisper White, cut them out and mounted them onto the cardstock.
Card Recipe:
Stamp set: Ocean Commotion, Family Phrases
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sky & Spring Break DP & Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Soft Sky, Not Quite Navy, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Stitched ribbon Soft Sky, Dimmensionals, Paper Piercer, Circle punches & Cutter Kit

This is a photo of Kyle from our recent holiday, enjoying himself with his boogie board. I've gone with much the same colours again and the same striped DP. Though the base of the page is Bashful Blue, as this colour looked much better with the photo. This is a great sketch for scrapbooking and one I will be using again. It can be adapted in so many ways, to vary the look!
