Sparkling Smiles

I got some much needed stamping therapy this morning! Ive missed doing my daily challenges but I love my new nephew so I guess my stamping can take a back seat for a couple of weeks!LOL! Jaylen was 1 week old yesterday and is doing great!

Since Im so behind on challenges I used todays colors challenge and Julee's mojo38 sketch. I thought todays colors were perfect for my unloved turtle from the SU silly sealife set. I colored the turtle using prismacolors and blended w/gamsol then I sponged soft sky and blue bayou around the image and edges. I stamped cheesecloth inked in blue bayou onto soft sky. The 3 panels are embossed using itty bitty backgrounds and holographic ep. I love it b/c of the sparkle! I also added diamond stickles to the bubbles in the image and the oval sentiment layer. The sentiment is from Verve Visual. I actually used white as a background layer on this card which I never do but I like the way it looks on this card! My knot turned out perfect on this card. Wanna know how?!?!?! I used the stay put bow! Love it! Have a great day!
