Isn't this the cutest seahorse? I wanted to make a circle card using a circle and circle scallop nestabilite from Spellbinders. The water is made with a Cuttlebug tiny bubbles embossing folder. I've added some blue gemstones and the rest, of course, is from the featured set.

Cardstock for base is MFP Old World Gold.

Hope you've enjoyed this week of hopping. It's time to head over to Toni's blog.

Like the Sea creatures cards. Reminds me of my O'ahu trip in Mar. Saw & photographed the area where the Mermaid scene was filmed for the latest Pirates of Caribbean movie. My Daughter headed back to college to begin her Junior yr this morn & I'm already missing her. Need to go do some more crafting/stamping.
