This is for Cathy's challenge. I loved making this because I didn't know where I was going when I started out. I simply picked a stencil that I could rotate through 90 degrees, and used yellow and blue for sponging it. The resulting mesh effect (despite the yellow!) made me think of the sea so I got out a seahorse and some seaweed. The seaweed is coloured with Perfect Pearls diluted with water but I couldn't get the shimmer. The seahorse was stamped on white card, embossed with clear EP and then coloured with Twinkling H2Os, so he shimmers too. I edged the card with gold EP, added a sentiment and then sequins with Dew Drops on top for bubbles. Thank you for such a fun challenge, Cathy.

For not knowing where you were going with it, this card turned out beautifully, Sabrina! Love your background with the gold embossing around the edges, and the addition of sequins for the seahorse's bubbles is brilliant!
