Fusion Card Challenge - 'Nautical Bear'

It's waaaay past time for the 'Nautical Bear" Fusion Card Challenge (since it's time for a new one, starting tomorrow)!! However, I'm posting a few cards, which were finally photographed. I'm so very sorry for the delay!

My projects, taking inspiration from both the photo and the sketch, focus on the red/white/blue color combo and the nautical theme (oops... no little bear here!). I've mimicked the ombre frosting, using an array of blues, added lots of pops of red, a crisp sentiment and a bit of texture (swirly clouds peeking out) and dimension. And, YAY, a few little boy birthday cards to add to the stash!!

The DT has created LOTS of lovelies, so be sure to hop on over and join the party! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as you jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together.  

stamps: You Float My Boat (MFT), Under the Sea (Flora & Fauna), Keep It Simple: Birthday II (PTI)
paper: Stampers Select White, Pure Poppy, Bitty Big: Pure Poppy (PTI)
ink: Cherry (The Stamp Market), Iceberg, Eastern Sky, Ultramarine (Altenew)

We hope that you'll join in at the Fusion Card Challenge and will enjoy all of the loveliness from the DT and the always amazing gallery!
