SISC17 Water, Water Everywhere

Here's my card for StamInsanity Challenge 17 Water, Water - Everywhere . This is another summer inspired theme. What do you think when you think of summer and water? Well I think of my kids playing in the pool. We have an above ground pool that gets put up every summer. It's not that big since we have a tiny back yard but it's big enough for my kids and a few of their friends. 

For my card I decided to use this blue because it reminds me of the color the water looks against the pool liner. I used Hang Ten Henry from Beach Babes by StampInsanity. I wanted to use more of the blue but all I could find were a few strips of it in my stash. I found this sketch from Mojo Monday # 146. It was perfect for the strips of blue card stock.
