Down to Earth (with a bump)

What a busy weekend! Had a lovely time over on Ali's Island on Saturday with the troops and the sun shone all day so it was fab. It was funny getting the last ferry home and knowing that that was the island cut off for another day (unless of course you wanted to swim off...)

Anyway, this seems like an appropriate time to share this card (see what I did there....). This is one of the new releases from Funky Kits called Under the Sea and this is the first time since I bought all four of them that I've actually managed to use one! Watch out for the other three making an appearance very soon.

I may have gone slighly OTT with the pearls but I love them and I'm really pleased with this card too.



Challenges I'd like to enter
OLLCB - All at Sea (I'm hoping a mermaid counts)

Stamps
Under the Sea, Funky Kits coloured with Promarkers and Copics
Sentiment, Stampin' Up!
 Cardstock/Paper - from stash
Embellishments - Pearls and mesh from stash
Tools -  Cheery Lynn Corner Die, Cuttlebug

Thanks for dropping by today. I'm off to sort through some stuff that my lovely friend Lorraine gave to me and then maybe even do a spot of crafting. 

Hugs. Susan xxx

I remember someone saying she didn't like mermaids!
She's obviously converted you as this is lovely.

You can never have too much bling, but I love that you used the pearls in varying sizes to represent the bubbles...that's fantastic. Gorgeous card all around. :)
