Thankful Octopus

New catalog launch day!!  And I ordered just one stamp set from the preorder sooooo....

Okay I know I did a purple octopus last time, and sooner or later this octopus will appear in every color under the sea, but I saw an ad for something (I don't even remember what) that was Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape so I had to use those colors.  I added Lemon Lime Twist because when is Lemon Lime Twist *not* a good idea :p There's actually a bit of subtle texture stamping on the LLT panel though it's hard to see in the photo.

I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:

Should have made the rectangle smaller to more strictly adhere to the sketch but oh well.  This card will be going out in the mail very soon; my in-laws gave Ryan a little wading pool and he LOVES that thing, so Ryan is going to send them a thank you card for it.  He likes to hop in the pool and then go put his cold wet hands on Dada's leg, haha!

Cheers, y'all!
