Peachy Keen Challenge #31

 Good morning!  Well, it's time for another Peachy Keen Challenge, and this week, it's a sketch challenge!

 When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought porthole card, and I also knew right away which image I wanted to use.  I've had this cute shark from the PK952 Ocean Fun set from Peachy Keen Stamps colored since last summer, but had yet to put him on a card, and I knew this would be perfect for it.  The bubbles  and starfish come from PK951 Sea Animals and Creatures stamp set.  I colored those with my Copic markers, but the shark was water colored and then given a coat of silver Shimmerz paint.  It's a really great effect, but the photo doesn't pick up on that very well.  The sentiment comes from Best Yet from Stampin' Up!, as does the woodgrain background stamp, which I used to make the porthole.  I used some silver brads around the edges of the porthole, and page pebbles on the bubbles for a little more dimension to this card.  There is a layer of acetate between the frame and the shark, which gives this card authentic porthole look.  I found this designer paper in my scrap bag, and I believe it comes from K&Co., but I'm not sure which collection.
Head over to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog to check out this wonderful sketch that Angelica gave us to work with, and of course all the amazing design team samples for your inspiration.  They're gonna knock your socks off!!  Be sure to upload your creations for this challenge to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog by Sunday, July 4th.  There will again be two winners.  The judged winner will receive their choice of the new Monster Face Stamps, and the random winner will receive the Happy Little Bigger Froggies set.  All of those samples can be seen on the challenge blog.
