I used three stamps by Great Impressions. I stamped the fish, masked it, stamped the plant, masked it, and stamped the sand and shells. On the outside of the acetate, I have the fish a little google eye and the bubbles are Rain Dots by Cloud 9. I finished off the card with sheer ribbon and a gold fish charm. I didn't do as many layers as I normally do, because the design did not call for it. The three panels are popped up and then I popped up the image.
The DP is so pretty I was able to keep the inside simple. I cut at the yellow shell with cardstock and chalked it, which makes a nice place to write a short note.
Thank you for looking at my card.
Below is the sketch for this week's challenge. It will run until August 6th DON"T FORGET - tomorrow is Freebie Friday. Wendy releases a new freebie every Friday.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Stamp with Fun - Use shapes or punches - I used MS punch
Creative Inspirations - Something old, something new - The image is new and the paper and ribbon are old.
Digital Tuesday - Easy as 1-2-3 - Use 3 embellishments - I used ribbon, charm, and buttons
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Use dies or punches - I used MS punch
Our Creative Corner - Triple Play - Use 3 embellishments from a list. I used ribbon, charm, and buttons.
Simon Says Challenge - Use summer fruits or summer fruit colors - I have all the colors on this card
There are ten layers on the front of this card. The image cut out two times and popped up, and the face was popped up a third time. The image was colored with Copics and I used waxy flax in the buttons. The grass is glossed with Crystal Effects. Of course, I had to add some stickles.
I tried to capture the many layers.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. Your comments give me inspiration and keep me motivated.

I painted the flowers and clouds with shimmerez. The picture does not capture the shimmering of the clouds. If you click on the picture you can see her vest and hair bows are paper pieced. The dragonfly is a metal embellishments and I have added gems.

The image is stamped, heat embossed and colored with Copics. The picture doesn't show it very well, but I used a Spica pen on the fireworks to add a touch of glitter. The beads are red, blue, and gold.
The DP is so pretty and perfect for the 4th, the inside didn't need any extras, other than a place to write a short note. The curly ribbon adds a nice touch.
