Beach Babe - Friday Freebie

Hello, I back to share with you a card I made using the
Friday Freebie over at Scrapper's Delights.
Isn't she just adorable with the fish nibbling on her foot.
I printed and cut her out using my Cricut Explore, then colored with Copic
markers.  I love the way the image comes with a small border/edge around the image as we all know this is not possible to do using Cricut Design Space.
For those interested, it also comes with out that border edge.
The Scrapper's Delight DT were challenged to make something using this image with a twist......make a shaped card or no pattern paper.  I really wanted to
make my card using both twists but just ran out of time and had to go with using no pattern paper.   The blue paper on the bottom is very fibrous and has a slight texture to it so I thought it would be perfect for the "water". I tore several pieces
and layered them to look like waves and give it some depth and dimension.  I
took a white gel pen and added some details to the water.  The top very very light blue paper I embossed using my Darcie cloud folder.
So now go and grab your Friday Freebie image over at Scrapper's Delights. 
There is also a month long Scrapper's Delights challenge where you

Love the texture on your sweet card Donna but I don't think I'd be looking like that if a fish was attached to my foot! Cute image non the less! I'm also impressed that you can use a cricut! Sadly the one my husband bought me is back in its box... Drivers and what not put me into melt down...scissors are much more straight forward!!! Jx
