Under the Sea

Hi everyone,
I can't believe it's the last long weekend of the Summer....phew time flies!
All the grandkids are excited for the first day of school on Tuesday 
and I know their Mom's miss them already.
I've a card to show you today that uses an adorable image from Aurora Wings called Sea Turtle Kiss. 
I went out of my comfort zone and coloured her hair turquoise!
The design paper does not show it but it is all glitter.

I coloured a piece of cheesecloth using Tim Holtz Evergreen Bough distressed Ink and water.
MB Big Splash Border and Whimsy Seashore Element dies for the starfish and sand dollar.
Coloured with Copics  and Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen used in her hair

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by,
Pat K x
