Addicted to CAS Water

It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS!  If you have never joined in on one of our challenges, we would love for you to make this week your first!  This is a great site because you don't have to make a super detailed card.  Clean and simple are a great starting point for new stampers, but can be complex for advanced stampers as well. I just love them!  This week's code word has so many possibilities!
I knew right away what stamp I wanted to use when I saw the code word was water.  I have some cute little birdies playing in a bird bath. I had to include some waves and splashes too, of course!
It's hard to see in my picture, but after I was finished coloring my image I put some Crystal Effects on the water splashes and flowers.  I thought this gave an extra "water" feel.  Oh, and I almost forgot...I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week! A cute and simple little sketch!
