To learn more about my fabulazing (that's fabulous and amazing) sponged surfin' card keep reading:

Leave me a comment about this post and become a follower of my blog and get a chance to win my own blog candy!  I am giving away a trio of sponged cards with coordinating envelopes just in time for Father's Day.

Step 1.  Brayer a whisper white panel with So Saffron ink.

Step 2.  Punch a circle from scrap paper and rip off the bottom.

Step 3.  Use a temporary adhesive to secure ripped circle on brayered panel.

Step 4.  Sponge Marina Mist near the bottom of the ripped circle to create the horizon line.  Sponge to about 2/3 to the bottom.

Step 5.  Sponge Wild Wasabi on the bottom and up to blend the Marina Mist and finish the water.

Step 6.  Sponge More Mustard to create the horizon line of the sun setting sky.

Step 7.  Sponge Tangerine Tango on the top and to blend the More Mustard to finish the sunset sky.

Step 8.  Carefully remove the ripped circle.

Step 9.  Using Jet Black Staz On stamp the Extreme Surfboard over the sun and across the horizon line.

Step 10.  Wrap Linen Thread around the lower half of the sponged panel and secure on the back side.

Step 11.  Glue the sponged panel to another piece of Whisper White cardstock which measures 3/8" larger all the way around.

Step 12. Score each side of Whisper White cardstock 1/4" from the edge.

Step 13.  Cut out the corners as shown in the photo to the side.  Fold all edges up to create the frame.

Step 14.  Stamp a greeting from Short and Sweet on Whisper White scrap cardstock using Jet Black Staz On.  Punch it out using an oval punch.  Add one olive brad and secure to cardfront.

Step 15.  Fold a 4 1/4" x 11" Certainly Celery piece of cardstock in half to create card base.  Run the front half through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.

Step 16.  Using Stampin' Dimensionals attach the focal panel to the card base.
