Sea of Love - Day 3

I don't know how many times I created a card for Day 3's post before I finally felt like I got it right. I decided to use my Slice and the Under the Sea cartridge to cut this piece of coral from A Muse Blush cardstock. Yup, you heard me right. It's 8.5" x 11" solid colored cardstock. I'm so excited to have several solid colors released as full papers. I sponged a little SU Cameo Coral along the edges of the coral, then adhered it onto a bit of Sky cardstock with lightly sanded edges. I stamped the cute little mini fishes with navy ink, then cut and glued them in place. I added a few air bubbles with micro clear Twinkle dots, then layered the whole thing on some Ocean Blue, then onto a natural white 4-bar notecard.


I love the new sentiment 'seas the day' for the empowering message it brings. Just take the day by charge and make it what you will! Seas the Day!!
