Under the Sea

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  Did you think I'd disappeared again?  I did, kind of.  I ran out of all the cards I'd made before my surgery and haven't been able to sit very long to make more.  I did manage to put a card together to share today.  It's for a few challenges I like doing, one that was ending today.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Bermuda Bay and the patterned papers are all from the Webster's Pages Seaside Retreat Petite Papers pack.  The gorgeous image is Marina from Delicious Doodles.  It is also available in rubber and as a digi from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I printed the digi on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added lots of Stickles (Aqua, Turquoise, Purple, Yellow and Red) and some Ice White Pearl pen accents. I machine-stitched two zig zags down the left panel.  A few Wild Orchid Crafts Cherry Blossoms, a simple bow and a metal fish charm finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  If I can stand a little more sitting later, I'll pop on by to visit.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
