Underwater birthday

 Hello and welcome!
Just popping in with a card I made for
the current AAA Birthday #35 - Under the Sea challenge:

Here's the inside:

The background was made by blending kraft and a couple blue inks onto
white card stock. I ripped some scrap paper to use as masks for where the sandy bottom
and the ocean meet. This was matted using a much-neglected wave punch, then
adhered to a pale blue card base. I stamped multiples of all the undersea critters 
and foliage, colored and die cut. Once everything was glued in place, 
I stamped the sentiment and another one on the inside.
I feel like it's been forever since I've colored anything, so it was
good to use my markers again. 💗

That's it for now. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a good day!
