I made this card for the challenge at Repeat Impressions' The House that Stamps Built but had to laugh when I came across Alphabet Challenge's "C is for Coveted" because you wouldn't believe the torture I went thru when I decided to use my cardstock from Stampin Up's Shimmery White.  It is truly my most coveted cardstock and because of that I'm terrified of making a mistake on it.  I swear I've had an unopened package for two years! Now the cheapo Walmart white cardstock I have no trouble wasting at all! Anyway, Repeat Impression's challenge theme is Sponging or Brayering and since I wasn't very happy with the last moon I did, I thought I'd try it again with this Pelican from Repeat Impressions.  The sponging is done with Memento Inks and the pelican is colored with Copics.  The oval die is Spellbinders and the border punch is Martha Stewart.  I think the retirement stamp is Repeat Impressions too.  A little stickles on the moon and the water and done!

I'm entering this into the following challenges!
The House that Stamps Built (Repeat Impressions) - Sponging or Brayering
Alphabet Challenge - C is for Coveted
Papercraft Star - Birds
Rhedd & Rosies - Birds
Sparkles Forum - Birds
