CCEE1529 Under the sea

Challenge day on CCEE Stampers blog today our hostess Lynn is in Texas USA is looking for ways to keep cool and has asked us to create an under water themed card.
It was a challenge to make with card with my frosted fingers haha. We are have a bit of a cold snap, although the weather forecasters are calling it a winter vortex. Our usual sunny winter weather is frosty with some snow falls in the lower heights of our southern states. It is very rare for us to have snow except for the highest mountain peaks.

For my card I used the Circle accordion die, designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

  Here is the card flat out, it is easier to decorate all the panels before joining them. I created the background colours using a solid stamp and chalk ink pads.

 Here is the card all joined together.

The reeds on the bottom edges were create using the All seasons tree die, I have also used pieces from other die sets.
