Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 19 July 2013 - Under the Sea

We had a lovely selection of entries to the first fortnightly challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog.  This fortnight the topic is "under the sea" and it is time for Team B to show you their creations.  It's a new outing for some of the Design Team so it would be lovely if you could pop on over and have a look at their creations.
Although I am in Team B I couldn't resist making a card for this challenge as I love anything to do with the sea.  For my card I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Ching-Chou Kuik called "Soft Goth Night" as I wanted to make a nice summer "under the sea" card.  It is available as a digital stamp, a individual rubber stamp and it also comes on a plate with 3 other creations - Sheet 10, Plate 36 - and comes with the other beautiful creations Misty Reflections, Caribbean Treasure and Unregrettable Pirate Life.

The backing papers I have used are from a backing paper my friend bought me by Crafty Individuals as she knows I love the seaside.  I have chosen this backing paper of under the sea with fish and shells on it.  I have stamped around the edge of the backing paper and image with some Jayne Neterenko seaside stamps and Memento ink pads.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and edged with a chalk ink pad.  I have die-cut some shells and an anchor from two Marianne Designs die sets and chalked them to accentuate the embossing.  I have cut some leave dies and inked them to look like seaweed.  I have finished the card off with a die-cut sentiment and a flower.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
