My challenge for you is called "Under the Sea" and I want you to create a card or 3-D project with things found in the sea.......such as seashells, fish, sea creatures, mermaids, fishing nets, etc. I've made a Shadow Box Card using Little Mermaid Tilda & the Magnolia Seahorse. I found this awesome tutorial on how to make this card on Heather's Blog here and used my Scor-Pal and Scor-tape to put it together.

I used various Jolee Stickers (fish, seaweed, starfish, clam) to create my scene. I gathered raffia together, tied a bow and glued a WOC flower to the middle. I got the fish charm (under the bow) from Walmart. The netting and sea shells were in my stash (I think I got them from Hobby Lobby). I embossed the blue cardstock on the front with Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl and rubbed CTMH white ink over the top and edges. The textured blue paper on the inside is from The Paper Studio. The sentiment is from TPC Studio Undersea Adventures and stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. I cut it out using SB Fleur De Lis Accents and inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I covered a bunch of stuff with Stardust Stickles.

Here's a side view so you can see some of the dimension. I raised Tilda, the Seahorse, and Sentiment on pop-dots.

Have a great time and I hope you enjoy this FUN blog hop and contest!!

Hugs,
