Wishing you Oceans of Joy!

Quickly stopping by to share a card made specifically for the Fusion challenge, this time I've fused both the photo inspiration of the marine with the sketch.

I used the seahorse layering stamp from Hero Arts and the sentiment.  I made the life buoy myself from circle dies, wound a bit of twine around and hey presto.  The bubbles started life as a blank piece of white cardstock, lightly spritzed with Glimmer Mist in Sapphire and die cut.

The die has all the bubbles attached in one single piece so I did a bit of snipping and randomly placed on the piece of burlap to finish the card.

 I do think seahorses are rather magical :)
