So Nice to Sea You

Hey Everyone!
Ready for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown?
This week we want to see your vacation themed creations!
Our awesome sponsor is The Stamping Boutique and they have provided some super cute images for the DT to use.  But I decided to use one of the images I already had in my collection.
I'm in a shaker card kind of mood.  I just love filling in those clear spaces with these fun little beads and shaking them around!  My original plan was to use some dew drop type beads in the middle, but after layering about 15 circle frames and still not having enough room to shake those beads around, I nixed that plan and went with the tiny beads instead :)  They're more fun anyhow :)

The image I've colored up is Uncommon Friendship.  I've used my colored pencils on everything, and added touches of stickles to all the little sea friends, and the mermaids tail.

Overall, the card was left really simple, but it did take me a little bit to put together because of all the layers for the frame.  And I added a fun sentiment to go with the image :)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    613 Avenue Create #80-Anything Goes/Shaped Cards
    Crafty Cardmakers #119-Under the Sea
    The Crazy Challenge #175-Summer Vacation
    Fab n Funky #223-Feels Like Summer
    Let's Craft and Create #94-Shaped Cards
