Under the Sea

It's a beautiful day, both above water and under the sea!  Today starts the 'Under the Sea' challenge over at GingerLoft Challenges.  Tami has gone out of her way to provide an amazing array of sea life digi's to play with this fortnight.  Check out her store, buy or find a digi and get creating! 
From jellyfish to manatees from sea turtles to dolphins.  Let us "sea" the wonders of the sea:)  The random winner will receive 3 digis of their choice from our Gingerloft store and our top 3 will be the next challenge GDT. 
I couldn't choose so I did two cards as DT for this challenge.

The turtles are stamped on Neenah solar white.  Then, stamped a 2nd time, colored (copics of course), cut out and popped on top of the original image.  The jellyfish were stamped on scraps, colored, and cut out.  I used my flower shaper tool to round out the domes and then popped the domes and glued the  'arms' (?) onto the paper.  Add some DP, ribbon and clear teardrops from my stash.  Put it all onto a card embossed with my CB embossing folder bubbles.  The sentiment is from OCL and punched out with SU word window

This card uses Tami's manatee image.  Isn't he cute!  Colored with copics on Neenah solar white.  Ek success border punch, spellbinders nestie for the sentiment, ribbon and bling from my stash and the CB embossing folder 'bubbles'. 
These cards may be entered in the following challenges:
GingerLoft Challenges:  Under the Sea (DT)
Amber's Crafts and Stuff:  Use digi stamps
Southern Girls Challenge:  Green and Blue
Paper Cutz Challenge:  Anything goes
