Under the sea ... at The Sweet Pea Stampers

Today it's the turn of team B to show their cards for the new challenge on The Sweet Pea Stampers challenge blog: 'under the sea'. Please visit the blog and see the beautiful crafting of the rest of the team - and, hopefully, join in the challenge.

I've used Elaine Cox's Little Jasmine mermaid digi, coloured with spectrum noirs. The background paper was from my offcuts box. I used a torn piece of 'sea pebble' paper at the bottom, a black lace rub on and some glitter strips. The edging on the right of the image was done with a Martha Stewart punch. Flowers are from stash.
