Sea themed shaker card

Hi Everyone,

It's time for a new DT project for Divas by Design... Wow, I make them bi-weekly, but it feels like the 2 weeks always just fly! This week we have a fun, sea-themed challenge "Under the sea"... Now, you'll see that my card is more "on" than "under", but I was told that anything sea related would be fine, so this is what I came up with :-)

I had this idea of a sailboat turned into a shaker card... And boy did I give myself some hassle! I ended up with creating my own sailboat shape for my Silhouette Cameo since I couldn't find anything I was 100% happy with... Quite pleased with it, I must say! 

I cut the shape in a sheet of white cardstock, then mounted it on a navy base... I added a few punched "wave" lookalikes, a funky sentiment to go with the theme, and some gold stars (for some reason I thought the stars were a must!). And - of course - the sequins! Aren't they fun? The colours are just so gorgeous - I wish you could see them in person! I tried taking some snaps whilst the sun was shining, so that you could see the lovely colours better :-)

All in all - I am rather pleased with the end result. What do you think? 

 Aren't the sequins just lovely?
I got them for €1 in some German stationery shop a few months ago,
and I wish now I had bought more!

I am entering the card into the following challenged:
Inky Chicks - Photo Inspiration
Love to Create - Anything Goes

The inside is not embellished at the moment - haven't decided yet who the recipient will be :-)

Hope you have fun creating your sea projects!
