CIC362--My Greeting Farm

Hello Everyone!  My summer break has finally begun and to kick it off, I have a super fun card to share for this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge--Under the Sea. The Greeting Farm is our wonderful sponsor, and they have some super amazing products!  Be sure to link up for your chance to win!

For my card, I repurposed some tulle. I wrapped it around a couple of times and taped it on the back. I knew I wanted to make a shaker to mimic the movement of the ocean. I spied a badge holder on my very messy work bench, so I repurposed it too.  I added blue, green, and turquoise sequins that I had found at Dollar Tree. I sewed the top and added ribbon (The Ribbon Resource) to finish the top. I used The Greeting Farm's Chibi Diver digi and colored her with Spectrum Noir markers. I added Glossy Accents for her mask to add dimension. I die cut the sentiment from silver foil card stock (DCWV). I adhered it to a piece of blue paper. I had thought to add the sentiment directly on the shaker, but it blended in too much.
