A Cool Card with Happileigh Scrappin'

for my Paper Cupcakes post, please click here.

I don't know about you, but I am so ready for cooler weather to arrive... and thankfully at Happileigh Scrappin' the challenge is all about cool colors to get us in the mood! Here is a color chart to give you an idea which colors are considered cool and which are considered warm.

As always, you do not have to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image to play along, but if you do, your entry gets put into both the regular drawing and a separate drawing for even more prizes! Leigh has several specials going on at her store, so be sure to check them out. This cutie little snail is available with any digi purchase for the month of August, and then she also has a buy 3 get 1 free promo running. Stop by to see what's new!

For my card, I used this fun little sea turtle. The sentiment comes from Create with TLC. papers are K & Co. Que Sera Sera. the bubbles on the main image are painted with shimmerz. I added water drops with my watercolor brush to add to the underwater effect. Of course polka dot ribbon seemed perfect with all of the bubbles! A zipper flower with rhinestone center finishes off the card.

I do hope you will join in this 'cool' challenge! can't wait to see what you create!

A great card, perfect for our Opus Gluei challenge. Love the use of shimmer mist for that ocean feel as well as the bubbles of the ribbon! (that's a cute idea) I'm intrigued by the zipper rose, I don't know how well I'd fare trying to make one of those, yours came out great!

Your central image is adorable and you've colored him to fit with the feel of the card really nicely.

Thank you for participating with us at Opus Gluei!
