I Sea it's your Birthday!!

Good Morning!!  I had a great vacation and I promise to post some pictures later this week.  I wanted to thank everyone for stopping by last week and leaving me such sweet comments.  (I would sneak a peek at them on my cell phone.)  LOL  

It's 2 Cute Tuesday which means it's time for another DT card.
I've created this under the sea porthole card for my brother-in-law's birthday using Sting Ray Kids.  It's hard to tell from the photo above, but there is clear acetate in front of the image to really give it that feeling that your looking through glass.  The porthole is also popped up with dimensionals to give it depth.  I used my C3 Copic marker to give a very heavy shadow on the image so that it looks like the porthole is casting a shadow on the water.  Don't they look like that they're in an aquarium?  I added Glossy Accents to their eyes and Shimmerz to the coral and seaweed.

Sentimental Sundays = #11 I can see clearly now
Cupcake Craft Challenge = #99 Acetate
Ai Factory = #43 Green with Envy (reused acetate from packaging)
