Sharkie Wants A Piece!

I've actually got a second post for today after the excitement of the first TE customer blog hop. Last week Henri asked me to draw him a kangaroo, so I'm not sure how I ended up with this shark. Sharks seem to be the rage right now for little guys. Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #139 and Henri's birthday card to go with the swimming trunks and flip flops he has his eye on at Gymboree.


I played around with Core'dinations and We R Memory Keepers textured cardstock, sanding after embossing with cuttlebug folders. My shark is printed on TE choice snow white cardstock and coloured with copics and prismacolors/gamsol. The mesh ribbon was from a TE kit when Spooky Expressions was released. I cinched it with a bead and included shells in front and behind to create a net. Not sure if this is a better closeup of my cheeky, cake-loving shark...


How do you like him? I'd love to hear...

What a great card! It's very unique... I don't think I've seen anything quite like it. Love the shell and net embellishment.

Oh my gosh Nancy! This card is awesome! That big shark looks he is going to pop right off the card & I like how you used shells in the net! Very creative :) TFS
