Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge is all about being in the middle! Whether you craft something where your focal point is in the middle, you journal about what you’re in the middle of, or perhaps select a stamp or sticker from the middle of the set this week we’re all about being in the middle of things!
I created lots of texture right in the middle of my card:

I recently added the fun Waves stencil to my collection which made for the perfect background right across the middle of my card.
I created an underwater scene featuring a die cut mini seahorse and sand dollar. I completed the card with additional texture and interest using the Bubble stencil:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
