GET IN SHAPE 

We don't mean start a diet and exercise regime, haha, nothing as drastic as that we are just asking for no square or rectangle cards this week!

It was by luck I saw this style of card on someone's blog and I knew I was going to use it for this challenge. First of all I had to track down my largest scallop die which was a Lifestyle die and the matching circle dies, the size of the largest die is 5.5 inches.
I cut the stripy paper out of the July's Kit and the border with the circle die and folded the scallop and circles in half. A little tip here you need to fold the scallops so that there are two scallops for the bottom otherwise it leans!
I use more scallops and circles for the borders for the main mat and to make my sea I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders in various blue and a the smallest one I used white. I put the strips together on a piece of card then closed my eyes while I run it through the Big Shot using Simon Says Stamp Stitched circle it was quite thick.
Now I had to add my little boat using the die from the Simon Say Stamp July's kit you can get it separately here. My sun is La La Land die but I cut two and hand cut the middle out to place in the centre of the sun, my clouds are from Simon Say Stamps My Heart Soars dies.
Now the only bit of stamping I did for the whole card, I used the Lawn Fawn Float my Boat for my anchor and I used the die that went with the stamp set. Finally my Birthday sentiment came from Happy and Smile stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.
Phew that was a bit long winded hope it makes sense, I hope the colours are OK too because I used the new computer and everything is a bit yellow on my screen.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

This is a great card Debby and must have taken quite a bit of time and patience to achieve. I love this rocker card and have made them myself but not for a long time, but it hasn't lost its charm. I adore all the extra embellishments which finish it so prettily. x
