Under the Sea........PPA58.......


At any moment now I expect Sebastian to jump out from behind this card and start singing "Under the Sea!"  (Huge Disney fan.....I admit it!)  Pals Paper Arts challenge this week was to create a CAS card using pearls.  I grabbed Elegant Soiree DSP and planned a simply chic card using Basic Gray and Crumb Cake.  But an ocean vibe took over and I created waves, added Baja Breeze and attached pearls like they were bubbles floating in the sea.  I put friends on the "lifebuoy" and tossed it in.......

                         "We got no troubles,
                          Life is the bubbles,
                          Under the sea!"

Crack open an oyster or two and go have some fun at Pals Paper Arts!

Linda, I love it. You are very cleaver and creative. I too am a Disney fan and will probably be singing Under The Sea all day. :-)

Great light hearted card. Really simple yet elegant and the "Friends" tag completes the look. Nice!

We are soul sisters. Little Mermaid was my favorite, and I am partial to Sebasitan as I am Caribbean. Love the card. This makes my case list.

Your "under the sea" card is fabulous, I really love the DSP and the colors used with it. Very simple, yet elegant, just what I strive for, but don't always get.
Thank you too for your wonderful and inspiring comments on my PPA posting, you certainly made my day.
Happy stampin'
