Card with Bargello Technique

Over at Catch the Bug we have a new challenge for you and it's "Anything Goes". Join us in the fun and be in tha chance of winning images from the Bugaboo store.

I wanted to try something new, so I used strips of paper scraps and made my underwater background using the Bargello technique. The fish are colored with Promarkers, they're part of a set you can find here.
I used my new Memory Box circle dies with stitched edges and I left a narrow border of white. I used another MB die to make the bubbles. The sentiment was in my leftover pile, I think it's from From the Heart.

I'd like to enter my card in these challenges as well:
1) Addicted to Stamps and More - #142 Make Your Mark
2) Crafty Creations - #288 Photo Inspiration (Colors and rectangles)
3) Perfectly Rustics - New Technique
4) Brown Sugar – #144 Anything Goes

It seems simple but it has a great style and the details are adorable! Very pretty card! Love how you made the background, the weave of snippets is stunning, what a great idea!! I will use it with my piles of leftovers...!! The bauble and the circle with the fishes looks great and all the card gives a feel of quiet, as the sentiment says. Great design!
