Ocean Commotion SCS Colour Challenge 200

I decided that I needed to do another workshop card. My Artfully Asian challenge card won't be liked by the ladies. Soooooo, I was on SCS this morning and saw the Colour Challenge #200. This card seemed to flow quite easily. I cased one of my own cards, and again using Ocean Commotion this is the result.
I sponged the Confetti White with Brilliant Blue, Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie, all stamped off twice first. I wanted to give the impression of the sea in the background and sand on the ocean floor. The side edges of the confetti white were sponged in Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie on the bottom. One fish and the seahorse are popped up on dimensionals. I used my Quickie glue pen and SU Chunky sprinkles to highlight the seaweed and sand on the ocean floor. Also Dazzling Diamonds on the fish and seahorse. There isn't a greeting, this card could be used for quite a lot of occasions and besides that, there wasn't room. lol
Cardstock - Brilliant Blue, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, Confetti White
Ink - Brilliant Blue, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie
Stamps - SU Ocean Commotion (Summer Mini Catalogue)
Accessories - Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, chunky sprinkles, diamond dust, scallop edge punch.
I did make another card but I'll keep that for another day. I'll have to get a stock pile up ├žause I'm out and about practically every day next week.
Thanks for looking.
