An Ocean of Thanks

 Last week my girls went to Vacation Bible School at our new church. They had such a great time! I wanted to make some special thank you cards for their teachers. 

The theme of VBS was "Ocean Commotion" so I used a few images from Kitty Bee Designs  on the cards.  I colored them with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers  and then fussy cut them. I also cut some pieces of coral/ seaweed with the Silhouette.  

 I added some Clear Sparkle pen to the turtle's shell and a little Glossy Accents to the purple fish. I finished the cards off with some sequins and a die-cut sentiment. On the inside they say:

"An ocean of thanks for all your hard work. We had a fin-tastic time!" 

Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers used:  OR3 OR2 OR1 CR7 DG3 CG4 CG2 HB3 HB2 HB1 

I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:
