Fun in the Sun

I love summer-time.  So, I was especially glad when I saw our challenge this go-round at Cards in Envy was called "Fun in the Sun."  I choose to make my A2 card with an underwater scene.

A2 sized card = 5.5" x 4.25"
Images from Miss Kate's Cuttables

Fish and wave images are SVG cuts via Miss Kate's Cuttables.  I added the faux white stitching along the top of the waves.  Background paper was a fortunate polka-dot that matched my theme.  Green and Yellow fish are mounted with foam tape.
