An Underwater Birthday

Hi everyone! Today my Digital Delights card features an underwater scene with Crab and Smiling Fish for a fishy birthday.

First I used Gimp (free software) to combine the Modern Frame and Under the Sea background. After printing I colored in the background and the two little fish.  I cut out the fish and popped them up with Stampin Dimensionals.

Card Recipe
Paper: Early Espresso, Lost and Found (sparkly paper) by Jen Allyson, GinaK Copic paper
Markers/Ink: Copics  
Embellishments: Michael's rivet brads, Spellbinders Label 18

Challenges for this card:

Be sure and take a look at what the wonderful Design Team has come up with for your inspiration.  And then hop over to the Delightful Challenges site and check out this weeks challenge.

Have a Great Day!
