Swimming by to say HI

Hello Friends!

In doing my blog commenting this morning, I spotted THIS fun card by my friend Doni High for the Little Red Wagon challenge which has a theme of creating your own background.  Well if you know me, you know I do enjoy creating background panels for my cards and 'making a scene' so to speak!  LOL  So here's what I've come up with . . .

 I created this background a week or so ago for another project but then switched gears and set this aside.  I was simply a spray of TH Broken China Distress Spray that I got a little heavy handed (fingered I guess I should say) on so it didn't work for the other project but works great for an underwater scene for today's card.

The dies I've used are:

Sue Wilson Designs - Fillables Collection - Underwater Accessories

Frantic Stamper - Dies - Swimming Mermaid
 Memory Box - Dies - Wandering Jellyfish

 Paper Rose - Dies - Under The Sea Border

What a fun card to create and since I didn't have the sentiment I wanted,
I simply created my own on the computer and die cut it using a Tutti Designs rectangle set.

So there you have it !
Now I'm headed out for a bit since the weather is beautiful!

Challenges to share in:

  1. A sprayed background! I knew you'd come up with something awesome! hugs :)

  2. A great scene and what a fabulous

  3. I love this fun card so much! The under the sea border really caught my eye right off the bat! Then of course the sweet little mermaid comes next and then of course the fish just speak to me. All this and a sentiment too! Such a great sentiment and it all rolls together to make a wonderful under the sea card!

  4. What a beautiful card, Darlene!
