I used the Seaside Shore stamp set along with Dapper Denim, Mint Macaroon and Calypso Coral inks.

The Art Piece:

Seaweed: Mint Macaroon and this striped with color using the Mint Macaroon Stampin Marker

Bubbles: Stamped off Dapper Denim.

Fish: one is Dapper Denim and one in Calypso Coral, both fussy cut and adhered with a dimensional.  I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the fish for added sparkle.

Tag: Calypso Coral ink and then  fussy cut and adhered  with a glue dot.

Ribbon:  Dapper Denim Ruched ribbon

Bling:  A few pearls for added bubbles

The Inside:

While you have all your inks out don’t forget to add a surprise to the inside and your envelope.  All the colors and stamps were the same as the art piece on the front of the card.

Did you notice?

I am not sure if you noticed but the full card in picture one is slightly different that the close up picture.  Can you tell the difference.  After my blog was completed and I sat and looked at my card I was want not 100% happy, something was off.  Then it hit me…the ribbon was supposed to be behind the art piece, not in front of the art piece.  I retook the photo of the full image card and thought, good, I fixed it.  I then looked at my blog and realized I did not re shoot the close up.  Time limitations prevented be from re shooting and having my blog ready to link with my team so I just left it as is.  I am sorry that I overlooked this detail.  I am curious…which card to you like best?  The ribbon in front or behind the art piece?

    I LIKE THE ONE WITH THE RIBBON BEHIND. my ONLY COMPLAINT ( IT’S not my place to say anything, because I’m terrible at making cards, but I keep trying!). is that I’d lower your sentiment. I really do like your card. It’s bright nd cheerful!
