Under the Sea Christmas at Lacy Sunshine

There's an adorable new release at Lacy Sunshine called Christmas Under the Sea (in the New section) and a Christmas in July Challenge on the Blog with the same name.  HAD to play along and used both Sheldon and Shelley C Turtle (with the 3D elements) for this fun card.

No need to crop the image and print over and over with the 3D stamp as Heather has isolated the parts to pop so fussy cutting is easier (and you KNOW how I love to fussy cut and add dimension). The two of them are colored with Copics and I've added some Sparkle Fluff flocking to Sheldon's hat.  I bought the cool waves die by Memory Box yesterday just to complete this card and added it the the window cut with my Spellbinders Grand Ovals.

Here's the dimensional shot.  The little starfish and crab are JoLee's Boutique as is the Christmas embellie in the corner which I thought looked a bit like seaweed.  I finished it off with a computer generated sentiment and epoxy dots for the bubbles.

Gotta say I should have said "Belated" Season's Greetings because hubby and I (well, that would be ME) stink at sending Christmas cards.  Inside would then read "Hope your Holiday was filled with all good things."  Love from the Mundingers (aka the "Slowski's")   LOL

I am entering this in the HIMCR Christmas in July Challenge, the CHNC Layer it Up Challenge, the CNCH July Extra Challenge, the Inkspirational Word Prompt Splash Challenge, My Sheri Crafts Christmas in July, Cut it Up Under the Sea, the Stamping Boutique Christmas in July, Aud Sentiments Christmas in July, Hobbybook Designer Challenge Christmas in July, Great Impressions July Animal Friends and C.R.A.F.T. Challenges Christmas in July.
