I created this card using Flourished Sea Creatures.

I stamped the image of the sea horse onto white cs and colored with Copic markers and then I used At You Spica pens to add a little shimmer. This was cut out and dimension added by lifting, folding and curling. The dp is from Webster's Pages. I stamped some of the fish from the stamp set and again added bling with the At You Spica Pens. The sentiment from the set was stamped onto another piece of the dp and cut using Spellbinders Labels 3 and mounted onto the shimmery orange cs using Spellbinders Labels 1. The crab was stamped onto a scrap of the dp and water-colored, then cut out and popped up with foam squares. The strip behind the sentiment is layered cs which was embossed with Cuttlebug's Divine Swirls.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you love this set as much as I do. It has such great images in it.
