Glittery Jellies

I ran across this sketch from Less Is More and it really caught my eye!
Then I came across a tutorial for creating a tunnel card, and I knew it would be perfect for my niece's birthday (she's turning 6!)  Here's the card:
 I stamped the jellyfish and colored them, and then added some superfine clear glitter to make them all sparkly and gorgeous!  I added glitter gel pen to their legs (?)  I sponged some aqua ink on through a bubbles stencil to help draw the eye to the center as the focal point.  The outside is all CAS and sweet, but the fun is on the inside!!  Here it is:
Isn't is fun!!  I wish I could see the look on her face when she opens it up.  I used the same bubble stencil on the layers to add to the ocean feel.

Stamps: Your Next Stamp "Sea Critters Set 1"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"; Verve "Sprightly Sprigs"
Taylored Expressions "Bubbles" stencil

Less Is More #378--sketch (see above)
MFT Summer School--Focal point
Double Trouble #8--Thing 1: happy birthday; Thing 2: link up to Pause, Dream, Enjoy (see below); Thing 3: add glitter (I used all three 'things')
Pause, Dream, Enjoy--Summer birthday party
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #333--anything goes with snippets (all of my critters were stamped on scraps of card stock and the sentiment banner and sprigs were all cut from scraps

Oh Heather - what a darling card! I love the front of course but can just imagine the little one's face when she opens it up and sees the underwater tunnel! Brilliant - and great way to use up little snippets too.
