Happy Day Under the Sea

     This is my first image from Cute as a Button but probably not my last.  :-D  I've just discovered them and I can feel a shopping spree coming on.  Oh, well, feeling a shopping spree is more fun than feeling a summer cold coming on!

    Speaking of summer, what could be better than celebrating a cool day under the sea?  I think I'll use this for a birthday card.


     I colored the image with ProMarkers and chalks, then added a bit of glitter to her hips and upper tail.  I used a die from Sue Wilson to cut the piece that frames her.  On this card, I cut the blue CS and laid it over the image.  On top of that I layered the undersea die cut from Memory Box.  I used the little negative circles that dropped out to make the bubbles on the image.  The little fish is also a negative piece.  I thought that would be a great way to use those tiny scraps instead of just tossing them away.
