Hello Oddies,

Today I want to show you a criss cross card with some candy inside.
I made this card for my son Aaron, who received his swimming diploma A.
So proud of him !!!
That means for him , he won’t have to wear floatable tools if he wants to swim.

I used  Surfer Kody for this card. 
I color him with the Tansai Gambi watercolor.

There is a lot to see on this card 🙂 
I used a couple sea animals dies, a light house, a wheel, some waves, an octopus and a crab with wiggle eyes.

Inside the card there is a little plastic bag that is filled with turtle and shark candy.

On the top I have used a craft stick and a white shark die.
The stickers say Hoera, which means Hurray!
A kraft banner with my son name.
In the middle it says  Aaron got his swimming diploma A.

For the extra bling I use some Stickles stardust and Nuvo drops.

I hope you like my card.
Hugs Christa
