"Under the Sea" this Week at Pixie Dust Studio

Do you LOVE the ocean? I do! There's no ocean here in the sunny south, so I really appreciate seeing it on the rare occasions that I get a chance. Use the ocean or sea life for your inspiration and the color BLUE, and enter this week's Pixie Dust challenge.

I chose the digi "Mermaid and the Pearl" from The Pearl Collection. I also used a LOT of blue! Blue is actually my favorite color, but I end up using mostly pink on my cards. Go figure!!!

The blue wavy paper is an older sheet of Creative Memories paper. The lighter blue was purchased at The Dollar Tree and is by Miss Elizabeth. The "coral" was made with a MS punch and then coated with turquoise Stickles. I had some wired pearls left over from when I made my son's wedding cake, so I added them to the card too. I then added some pale blue wired ribbon that I gathered by pulling some threads out of the middle. Love that look! Of course, I had to add some pearls! The sentiment is from Shirley's 2 Girls.
 I hope you'll enter this week's challenge! Link your card or project HERE. You could win a Pixie Dust Studio digi of your choice and a Star Winner's Badge for your blog! Stop by the Studio and the blogs of our creative DT. Their links are in my sidebar. You'll be inspired!
