Under the Sea

This card was made for the Birthday Bash Magnolia-licous Group Challenge #4!  The challenge is to use a stamp you hadn't used before and make an easel card!  Have wanted to color this fun Mermaid Tilda so thought it would be a good choice to use.  When I first saw these leaves, I knew I "needed" them, but didn't know what I needed them for exactly.  I've found so many good uses for them.  They are such a good addition to many types of scenes.  This was a terrific challenge because I also used a punch (the clam shell) that I hadn't used before!

Magnolia Stamps:  #378 Mermaid Tilda
                                 #434 Tip Leaves
Punches: Punch Bunch Branch, Carl Clam
Architectural Accent #1 Sizzlet Die
Distress Inks:  Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Broken China, Pin Needles, Peeled Paint, Fired Brick, Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone, Frayed Burlap
Pearls and Dew Drops
K & Company DP and Sandpaper
Shell pieces, Mesh

These were stamps from Magnolia-licious Store HERE!   Thanks Diana!!!  They were so much fun to work with to create a scene!  Don't forget to check out the new Wedding Collection stamps too!  So many adorable ones!!!

Again I want to thank all of you that leave comments!  It is wonderful that you take that time to leave the encouraging remarks and I certainly appreciate it!

Don't forget to join in on the Birthday Bash Challenges!  The Magnolia-licious Group moderators have come up with some fantastic ideas and lots of prizes and fun and WOW....the inspiration!!!!

Enjoy the day!!!
