Undah Da Sea (WT261, CCEE1010, MMSC44)

This card is for three challenges. First, the Ways To Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com is called, "What's New?" We were to use something that we have for crafting that is new to us and that we have not used before. I recently purchased all the Satin Ribbons from the Occasions Mini Catalog and have not had a chance to use the Chocolate Chip Ribbon (among others).

Secondly, the CCEE Stampers Challenge was a food inspiration challenge. There were three bowls of caviar which were yellow, orange and brown. The package in the background had a dark blue label on it. That's where I got my color combo. Also, my under the sea theme came from the idea that caviar is fish eggs.

Finally, I used the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge for my layout. I embossed the dark blue layers with the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder, used my "NEW" Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, paper pierced around the yellow layer, and I used the Martha Stewart Fern Punch for the underwater plant. There's also three clear dew drops near the ribbon tabs and I used Dazzling Diamonds on the angel fish and seahorse. Thanks for stopping by!!
