Under the Sea

A birthday card today with an underwater theme. 
The embossing folder is a new one I bought recently, Creative Expressions 'Ocean Waves'.  I thought it would make a lovely background, particularly for the MB 'Oceana Corner' die cut.  The die cut is embossed to show up the markings on the shells and fish.  A few of the fish and bubbles cut separately and I've added these in the spaces.  I cut one of the loose fish three extra times and attached them swimming away at the top of the card.  

I am joining in the following challenges:

What a gorgeous card Liz. I am very keen on sea themes and this fits the bill beautifully. The MB Oceana Corner looks wonderful over the pretty Ocean Waves EF, and the extra fish and bubbles look great. x

What an interesting and unusual card. The fishy die cut is perfect with the background. It makes a change from flowers (though we do all love them).
