Further Ocean's Gift

Good evening to all in the Land of Blog.  I have been a bit MIA at this end of the week as have been working on some exciting future projects.  Watch this space!!!  Happy me.
I have been visiting as many of you as I can and hopefully leaving a little love.  So many lovely crafty friends write such interesting posts and I love reading these as much as looking at your cards.  Keep up the good work girls, you know who you are.

Have you ever fallen in love with an image?  I love this image Ocean's Gift from Sugar Nellie  This is my second effort with the stamp.  She is so lovely and yet modern fun and funky. I adore the so cute little seahorse friend which I have coloured blue.

List of materials  used to make this card:
Core'dinations base card and Prima flocked blue designer paper and corrugated board.
Wonderful image coloured using Promarker Pens, and Prismacolour  Pencils and a liberal sprinkle of green, orange and pink glitter.
Lace, cheesecloth and wonderful Marianne Design ribbon roses on net ribbon.  
Crystal swirls, buttons and twine, tassel with lovely little pearl in shell charm, ribbon.
Die cut flowers made by me
Marianne Dies, shell and anchor.
I almost forgot I stamped the image on shrink plastic using Stazeon Ink and coloured with Promarker Pens.  This was then baked in the oven and voilà - a mini clear topper.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and look at my card.  Sending warmest wishes to you all.
