Sea-horse Birthday

Hi Lovelies,

I actually got some time to play along with one of my fav' challenge blogs the other day & now have some more time to share it with you is good sometimes don't you think?

The sketch is from Seize the Birthday.   I decided that the sketch reminded me of water & bubbles for some strange reason.  So I dug around in my pp's & found this cute pp which is double sided - Bonus!  So I tried very hard to use the colours from the pp to make my card.  Honestly I'm not 100% sold on the greens I used but it's all about learning, so all's good in the end.  I went a bit lot mad with the stickles & glossy accents, which I really enjoyed.  Must have had a "kid" inspired day lol.  Hopefully in the close up you can see my handy work with the bling, besides the seahorse I used GA on the dots.

Cute seahorse Paula! I'm. Not a big fan of the colour green either - it was our school uniform colour!
