Hello everyone from the Design Team at 

The challenge this week is a sketch (see below) with a optional theme of Crazy Critter and I chose the crab.

For my card, I started with white CS and blended distress inks in blues for the water, Salty Ocean, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass.  I then used my oval dies to cut two, one from the inked paper and one a little larger from pale blue cs to frame it.
The mermaid image is from Aurora Wings and the crab image is from Drawn by Krista.   I used colored pencils, markers and distress ink on both images and topped the mermaid with Wink of Stella. I fussy cut them both out.
The bottom paper is a scrap piece I have left over from DCW and the top piece is blue cs with a faux stitched edge in gold gel pen.  The sentiment is sponge edged with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink.  A cluster of navy Neuvo drops on the edge to finish it off.

Here is the sketch for this weeks challenge:

What a truly lovely card! I love how you created a scene that made me want to dive right in (as long as the crab wasn't TOO crazy)! I really like the color palette you chose and how you arranged your elements so skillfully. This was such a clever interpretation of our theme and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
