Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog

Another week, another Anything Goes challenge from Craft Your Passion. This week's guest sponsor is Doodle Pantry, where it will be very difficult to turn away from all the lovely images and products offered to you.
I got to play with a sheet of images called Dolphins, which includes both black line and colored images, and several sentiments, along with three patterned papers.  In fact, pretty much everything on my card is from Doodle Pantry, except for the two adhesive-backed pearls and the wire strung with fish beads that I liberated from my daughter's bracelet (hey, it was broken). LOL
There was just so much to work with that I decided to make a step card so that I could use plenty of images and papers. I will admit that I used the colored images (it made my life sooo much easier), but then I used the time I saved that way by fussy-cutting them out. I used all three patterned papers, one for each "step" on my card, tearing the paper on the middle step to form waves.
I wanted my card to look in motion, so I adhered a couple dolphins by just their tails so that they seemed to leap out of the water, lending my card dimension. Of course, the boss dolphin in front seems to look right at you, saying the words "Don't just float, make waves." That is one of the things dolphins do best, or so I've heard from people who were "lucky" enough to sit in the rows closest to the water's edge at our local zoo. You could say they were "soaking" in the dolphin exhibition.
You really should check out the Doodle Pantry for inspiration and images. And of course, come join us at Craft your Passion challenge blog for your chance to win!
Whatever you decide to do, have fun!
