Underwater Beauty

Hello and Happy Tuesday!!! It is very early morning (just after midnight) and I just finished this card. I have been working on this card for days and I knew how I wanted to come out but it just never looked good enough, how I envisioned it. Needless to say this is nothing what it started out as. I had a creative jolt after a long afternoon lunch with some school friends. I came home and took most the card apart and I decided to have fun with it. This was the end result!

The only 2 things I kept was the image and the 1st DP (the blue blue glittered DP that is now behind the underwater scene DP. I went crazy with the diecuts (7 different ones) to make the underwater plant life. Don't you just love this meshy ribbon that I found at a LSS. I just added the strings and the sea embellishments so it would look like an old fishing net. I tore the cellar apart looking for my son's old tackle box so I could use a real fish hook but no luck so I tried my hand at making one to hold the tag. I finished it off with lots of glitter and Dew Drops.

Okay enough babbling from me. Being Tuesday it is time for another fantastic challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  The theme this week is WATER!
We would love to see what you create so come on over and play with us!!!!
