Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge-WATER

Hello!  It's Saturday!  Time for another Kraftin Kimmie Challenge!  This week it's all about WATER!  The perfect challenge for Summer! 
 
For my card, I chose the adorable You're Sunsational Set!  A few weeks ago, I colored up this cutie in a Kraftin Kimmie Kolor Along!  And now I've finally used him on a card.  I chose some fun and water-themed patterned papers to match and die cut them into several shapes.  I layered them all in the background and created a little scene with the sun, palm trees, and crab.  Some felt waves and clouds finish it off.
