Cupcake Inspirations #163 Sponsored by a Day for Daisies

We're going to the beach this week at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.   We're sponsored this week by A Day for Daisies.

For my card, I used Saying Hello by A Day for Daisies.  I always wonder how to color underwater scenes.  I was inspired by Barbara's Underwater Castle Card.  I love the rainbow effect Barbara has for her scene.  I tried to recreated it on my card.  I colored the rainbow first using pale colors.  I colored over the rainbow for the mermaid and the fish.  I wanted to add texture to my card; it just says sea to me.  I used textured yarn and gold net.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Divas by Design #37 - anything goes
2. Do you stack up #74 - under the sea

Happy Crafting!
