Amazing Horizons

So, I was at a friend's house crafting the other night, and we combined our dies to make this fun card. I borrowed her Sizzix Basic Step-Ups die to make the base.  From my stash, we used the Memory Box Diving Dolphins die, Poppystamps seaside lighthouse die, Impression Obsession (IO) Shore Birds dies and stamped the sentiment & sailboat from Essentials by Ellen Stay Salty, then fussy cut the latter. The birds and boat were colored with pencils and sparkle pen. The clouds, beach, and oceans were made with sponged distress inks (and highlighted with sparkly blue and white gel pens). We added some sea grass via IO Tall Grasses and called it a SLOW card! It was interesting to see how differently our two cards turned out, as she favors warm colors and I cool ones...  She also challenged me to start posting to my blog again, so here I am!
