Bugaboo Under The Sea Day 7 Challenge

Today's Under the Sea challenge theme is a recipe:
 

For this challenge I used some older paper from Close To My Heart and some red cardstock.  I kept with the red, white and blue mostly red colors.  For the two bows I used blue and I added four large pearls.  I'm not sure if this is considered more than 3 layers or not...?  If you count per piece of paper (including the image) it is more like 8 layers.  LOL  I didn't think about that until after it was all assembled.  The image used is Sassy Gal Beach.  She was colored using colored Pencils.  I also added a die cut sentiment.
Thanks for looking!

Bugaboo Under The Sea Day 6 Challenge

Today's Under The Sea challenge is:

For my kiddo card I decided to keep it extremely CAS by making it so the kiddo can not only do the crossword puzzle, but they can color the image too.  The image used was Word Search-Brat Birthday Girl.  All I did was add a small bow and a few small pink pearls.

Bugaboo Under The Sea Day 5 Challenge

Today is day 5 of the Under The Sea birthday challenge at Bugaboo.  Today's challenge is:
 

I chose to use this fun image called  Gus Birthday - Rocking Chair.  I made this late last night in my freezing cold garage (that is where my craft area is).  By the time I was done with this very simple card my fingers were numb.  LOL  We are supposed to get up to 10 more inches of snow today too...Ugh!  I've been enjoying the summery cards that I've been making, this is the one exception so far.   I still have two more card to make this week for the Under the Sea challenge.
I colored this image using pencil, then used Glossy Accents over his glasses and some Crystal Stickles on the balloon.  I added a hemp bow to the top to add that 'something extra'.

Bugaboo Under The Sea Day 4 Challenge

Today's Under The Sea challenge is a bingo challenge:

 
 I went with Sparkle, Bugaboo Image, Pearls. 

I used this week's freebie image, three times to create a family of seahorses.  I used the pearls to be bubbles and the string pearls as a frame.  I used Crystal Stickles down their backs for the added sparkle.  I also added a beach edge punch on top of the frame and a purple bow.

Bugaboo Under The Sea Day 3 Challenge

Today's Under The Sea challenge is a color challenge:
 
For my card I used the image called  Summer Sports - Tubing.  I cut out the image using an oval die and a scalloped oval die.  I then used an embossing folder on the darker brown paper.  The only extra touch was the green bow on top.  Sweet and simple.
