An Ocean Of Gifts

This is a Birthday card made by the flops image given to me by Faith :). I dont know where to start about this card, because there is so much going on in it :). I wanted to do a beach kinda scene after seeing this image.

The Flops were plain so I made some flowers on it, I hope it was ok to do so, they look so yummy with the flowers :). The flowers are also colored with markers.

I made waves with two different colored blue card stock, assembled them with thick two way tape. added some glitter to the waves to give it a real look. 

The gifts are an Internet download, colored with my markers and  embossed to give a little dimension. i arranged them between waves.

The Fishes, Sea horse, Sea weeds, birds and clouds are embossed stickers from my new stash and so is the backing paper used. I tried so many backing papers and after a long time this was the only one which gave the best effect of the sea and the sky :).

The gifts are an Internet download, colored with my markers and  embossed to give a little dimension. i arranged them between waves.

I also added some glitter on the sand colored card stock. The sentiment is computer generated and i had it in my mind from the time when I had started with my card. 

I have tried my best to arrange everything in the best possible way, now you be the judges :). Just to tell you that my sister, mom, brother and some friends have liked it a lot :).
