Negative dies and punches

This was a fun card to make.  I have been wanting to try placing an image under an opening, and a challenge presented a great opportunity.  In case it does not show up well on the screen - I used a Nestie to cut a smaller circle from the dark teal, and a larger scalloped Nestie for the lighter embossed layer. For the image layer, I just made sure the cs piece was larger than the opening LOL!  I placed the dark layer, with the cut out circle, over the embossed piece and lightly traced the circle in order to have the opening at the right position.  I punched the tiny circles from the lighter cs, and then used those punches, layered over darker ones, to trim the sentiment. I completed the look with some shiny cord and a computer generated sentiment.  The image (SU) is colored with Twinkling H20's.

Welcome to the "Totally Teal" Challenge at Craft Your Passion... I like your clean and simple creation - especially your choice of the embossed top layer that looks so much like bubbles around your fish!
Good luck in the challenge Dorothy!
