Had Fun Creating This Card

Here is what I used to make my card....
Digital stamp by Cute As A Button

Digi image colored with Marco Raffine Colored Pencils.
Starfish and Seahorse created by me.
I used LolliZ Gel Pens for highlights on the mermaid/starfish/seahorse.
Background colored with Neopiko-2 Markers  -
I got the idea for the background from here: Copic Marker Spain
The leaves/flowers/fish/flat back pearls are from my stash.
Blue cardstock paper from my stash folded it in half for the card. 
Using 4.5x6.5 cardstock paper from The Paper Studio "Against The 
Grain", I rotated the paper and taped it in place.
Using 4.25x5.5 cardstock paper from Core Essentials "Brights", I tore the 
paper into three pieces and also used the Prima Marketing Comfort Craft 
Distressing Tool to sand the top of each piece. 
I cut around the digi image with Victorian Paper Edgers Scissors, 
then taped it slightly slanted.
I wrapped a piece of floral wire around the leaves and flowers, then 
arranged them how I wanted before gluing them in place. 
The fish have thread on them, so was able to glue the thread to the paper
 and leave them hanging.. 
I cut several short pieces of twine, unraveling each and adding them in
and around the leaves and flowers.

Thank you for visiting. Hope you like my card.

Here's My Newest Card...

Here is what I used to make my card....
Digital stamp by Julia Spiri
The Hat Collection - The Victorian Hat

I colored the image with Marco Raffine colored pencils.
Then cut around it with Victorian Paper Edgers Scissors.
Using DCWV 6.5x4.5 "The Mariposa" Mat Stack cardstock paper,
I also cut around it with those scissors. Then taped it to the card.
I taped a 3x4 "Debutante" Note Card from Prima Marketing INC.,
at an angle. Then taped the digi image onto the card.
Using ribbon from my stash, I made a bow, attached a key from
K & Company "Metal Art". Then glued the bow to the card and
put the key in place.
Using a leaf from my stash, I cut it into two pieces, placed three
flowers from my stash onto the leaves. Then glued the leaves in place.
Using the Martha Stewart "Deep Edge Lattice Heart Punch" with peach
paper, I punched the heart design, fussy cut around the heart and
taped it behind the flowers.
I used the blue/brown/peach cardstock paper from my stash.

Here is what I used to make my card....
Digital stamp by Julia Spiri
The Wedding Collection - Wedding Day

I colored the image with Marco Raffine colored pencils.
I used a paper doily from my stash and cut it in half.
Using A4 Paper Pad "Princess" from Prima Marketing INC,
I cut a piece of paper to fit and glued the doily to it.
I fussy cut around the digi image and glued it to the doily.
Using a short string of pearls, I made a loop and glued in place.
Then added three small ribbon flowers and two strands of baby's breath.
I also added three small flat back pearls to the flowers in her hair.

And that's my DT card.
