Birthday Fishes

 Happy Friday!!!  It's time for a new challenge from the Cut It Up Challenge Blog.  This week, the challenge is: Under the Sea

Here is my card for your inspiration:
I created a fun box card for my niece, who is turning 11 this week!    I had a lot of fun deciding what underwater creatures I was going to use to create the little scene.
We've got a crab on land waving hello, two dolphins playing in the waves, a narwal swimming along, and a cute little fish playing among the coral and seaweed.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the Cut It Up blog for the full details of the challenge and to see what the rest of the Design Team has created. 

Stamps: MFT "Friends with Fins" dolphins, tiny underwater fish, and narwal; Your Next Stamp "Sea Creatures" fish and crab and "Sea Creatures Sentiments"
Dies: MFT "Outside the Box" box elements, "Ocean Motion" waves and "Under the Sea" sand hill, rocks, coral and seaweed
Stencil: Taylored Expressions "Set the Scene: Clouds"
