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.
