By the Tide Birthday

 This card was my October all-occasion card - 2 Anniversary, one Sympathy and a birthday!

  I used watercolor paper for the background and brushed on six colors of Twinkling H2O paints and then lightly misted with water again so the colors would run a little. Then I used one of the stamps from Gorgeous Grunge for the bubbles and stamped that in Baja Breeze and Tempting Turquoise.  The coral was done in Sparkle N Sprinkles embossing powders - Pink Delight, Mediterranean Star, Ice, and Cappuccino.  The seahorses and shells (two of them are Inkadinkadoo) were done in Cappuccino and lightly colored with colored pencils.  The sentiment strip was cut off the side of the background and the sentiment embossed with Cappuccino Star.
The cardstock is Pool Party and Blush Blossom with an unknown brown.

 Between the Twinkling H2O's and the sparkle embossing powders, this card really shines!
