Feeling so blessed!!!

Well, I am feeling incredibly blessed today!  I checked my email today and saw that I had won over at Hero Arts and I was BLOWN AWAY!!!  Thank you ladies--I was really nervous about entering my card and you've made my summer by choosing it as your Fresh Face Favorite! :)

And for some reason, the picture of my card 
looks better on their blog than on mine...
(I'm thinking it's the words at the bottom!!!)~

Thank you for indulging me in a bit of a celebration--I hope you don't think I'm full of myself!!!  And now onto other matters of business!  I was having a serious lag in my mojo, but then I decided that I needed to do a digi card...and make it an easel.  It's my new "thing" and I've been having so much fun learning how to do both of these things better!

Here's the card~


For these fabulous challenges~


(I've used clear crackle accents and clear glass gems!)

This is kind of like another card that I made this past week, but I wanted to make it into an easel card!  That way, I got to create a sea floor!!! :)  To create my card front, I colored in my digi fish (found HERE and then added in Photoshop), sponged in some "water, stamped around the edges, added the crackle accents, a sentiment, and some purple glitter glue, and then lastly for good measure I added 3 purple rhinestones.  And then I tied it up...FUN!  I layered it onto two other colors of paper then added it to my easel.  To create the "sea floor," I made a strip of purple paper and scalloped the two edges, added some green and coral pieces of paper, then layered on punched out leaves and some clear glass gems and more purple rhinestones! 

Please forgive my awful grammar and run on sentences.  I hope you like my card--I had fun making it!!!  Thanks for popping over and saying hi, I'll see you and your creations soon!!!  Happy stamping! ;D
