Sea-ing

The sea is one of my favorite themes, and I've used it on these two cards. On the first, "Under the Sea", the background is done with the Cuttlebug embossing folder, "D'vine Swirls". The little mermaids asleep in a seashell are stamped (Stamp Happy, and the one at top is from the CS Designs digital "Babushka" collection. Her name is Anastasia, which means I have another card to enter in this month's Alphabet Challenge on CS Designs Challenge Blog; http://www.doodleartifacts.blogspot.com/

When I saw the swirls and bubbles on Anastasia, I knew she came from the sea. I'll have to challenge myself now to find other water play for her!

The second card, "Near the Sea", is for last week's CST (Canadian Stamp Talk) layout challenge. I used the D'vine Swirl folder again for the bg; I love it when I can hit two themes with one sheet of cardstock! Our list mom borrowed the challenge from The Sweet Spot; http://sweetstopsketches.blogspot.com/2011/05/sss108-may-14.html
Now, I need to check out this week's challenge on CST!

Kathleen, Anastasia looks so aquatic. I never noticed until I saw your ATC, how perfect this theme is for her. Her swirl matches wonderfully with the swirls on your background and the little circles look like bubbles. Great attention to detail.
