Sun & Surf

Over at Cut It Up Challenges

the Challenge #98 is
Sun & Surf

So on the Cricut site, there is a picture of the sea coming out of a frame, there's a ship on it, etc.  I loved it, but changed it up to make it mine.  The sea coming out of the frame on the card, I used vellum to give the waves,  sun and clouds an airy feeling with several layers.

I used the opposite cuts and some seagulls to decorate the inside of the card.

The Saying:
Live in the sunshine, swim the sea,
Drink the wild air's salubrity

is from Merlin's Song by Ralph Waldo Emerson

I had to look up the word salubrity which means drunkeness.  The actual poem is VERY long.  I decided to rhyme the drunkeness and make it "be free."
