Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Surf's Up

It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge:

Be sure to check out our guest designer for this challenge: Lenae at SugarGem

I was inspired by the curved edges and the variety of blues (although I didn't realize until I saw my card photo how much more turquoise my card is than the inspiration photo!)  First I did the curved edge then I had to figure out a sentiment.  I realized that my son heads back to college in less than a month and he has said repeatedly how much it meant to him that I sent regular cards of encouragement.  So I decided I had better work on my stash.

Unfortunately, I think I blew it for my son at the end.  I had stamped the little asterisk type things then decided to add some dimension with white Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Now they look like funky little flowers!  Darn.  With the picture taken and posted, I'm going to try to scrape off those dots - or maybe do some die cut stars - or something to get rid of the flowers!  Fingers crossed I don't ruin it all!

I hope to see you playing along!
