Go with the flow...

Good morning!

Here we are at the third and final day of previews for the summer release coming to the Hello Bluebird store tonight at 7pm MST. Today's previews are taking us beneath the ocean waves with all sorts of cute sea creatures and most exciting of all... mermaids! It's no secret that I love all things mermaid so I'm thrilled to finally see some adorable finned friends added to the store. Don't forget to check out the Hello Bluebird blog to see all of the fin-tastic cards from my fellow DT members and leave a comment for a chance to win a gift certificate to the HB store

My card today focuses on the Sea Life set, which includes all of the larger fish and sea mammals. I did borrow the stones, coral and shells from the Sea Friends set to add some interest down on the sea floor, otherwise the focus remains on all of those fabulous fish. They look like such a happy bunch, living in harmony on this mini slimline card that I cut out using the Nesting Deckle mini slimline dies. The sentiment is from the new Sea Sentiments set and I stamped it on one of the new Word Bubbles dies. There is also a new Ocean Overlay die which I cut out and used as a stencil for the background water in this scene since the line work and sense of movement tied back to the sentiment so well.

Alrighty then, have fun shopping tonight!  :)
