Under the Sea - Sketch

We are celebating the 7th birthday of Bugaboo over at Catch the Bug with daily "Under the Sea" challenges over at Catch the Bug.
For day 2 we have a sketch.

I went to my scrap pile for this one, using two leftover DP pieces and an embossed white background. Added a doily (a Christmas calendar gift from my sister), die cut bubbles, a dymo sentiment and 3 gems. I machine stitched around the edges with silver thread. The image is called Crab scuba and is colored with both Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens.

This card is also for: 
Crafty Gals Corner - #103 Patterned Paper 
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes
Crafting-With-Friends - Anything Goes

Super cute card. Love the image you chose and how you made it pop by matting it with the doily.

This card wit this crab is so fun and I like very much the rope embossed background with your stitching "watermark"! The bubbles look very pretty, too. This card remember me a Summer day, but it's so fresh, as an underwater bath... so lovely :D

[I am loving catching up with your cards... so inspiring, and it's like international craft-blogfriend's coffee date!] 😊
Ooh... the bubble die again. Of course the crab is adorable, but I gotta say I quickly identified that rope-embossed paper... it's inherently nautical and I love it.
