Gypsy Made Simple - Making My Circle Monthy Challenge

I finally got a chance to enter the Circle monthly challenge. Every month they run a challenge and my schedule is such that I never get a project done. Well this month I decided that that is what we will do with our Gypsy Made Simple project. You will love this fun card as it is sooooooo easy. I used the Life's A Beach cart. The cuts I used did not have layers so this card was a breeze. But because it is a challenge we need to follow the rules.... It must be a scene and use at least 2 cuts.
I designed this card and duplicated it as usual as I find it just as easy to make 2 cards as it is one so I doubled my design and in one cut I cut out 2 cards.

This video is a little lengthy but you will learn how to put the tri-fold card together.
These are the yummy colors I chose; the shark is in gray, the base of the card in a sand color and the water is in two shades of blue, and finally the other little fish and the title is in a salmon glitter color. Love it!
I colored in the sharks eyes and teeth.

And then I bagged all the parts so that I could put them together when I had more time.

This card was just so much fun to put together and so easy it amazed me. After I made the first card and knew exactly what I was doing the second card only took five minutes to assemble. You just gotta love a card that is that cute and goes together so easy.
Above is the front panel, and inside panel of the card. It really is a great sea scene, don't you think?
 And here is my shark and doesn't he look friendly? This card offers plenty of room to write on the inside.
This photo is just a close up of the top panels, if you click on them it will make the photos larger and you can get a better idea of how shiny and sparkly this card really is.

And here is my entry. I love it and look forward to entering it in the monthly challenge. Now I challenge you to make a project any project with your gypsy just like I did... it must be a scene and have a minimum of 2 cuts. Those of you that are in the circle can share their project here but please enter it to win in the Circle challenge too as it is the only way you are entered to win the prize they are offering.
