Week 336: OCEAN

Last week, we kept both feet on the ground.  This week, we're diving in as we explore a brand new cue word!

**Please note:  Due to it being spring break season, this will be a two week challenge to give everyone plenty of time to enter & design team members a little breather!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner $25 off their next online order!  Be sure and check out their Spring Cleaning March Sale for 30% off stamps and dies!
