"Finding Nemo" Challenge 11 at Crafty Friends

Our challenge at Crafty Friends this go around is "movie themed".  Our awesome sponsors for this challenge are Inky Impressions and Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I chose this cute little seaside stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle  because when I saw it I thought of "Finding Nemo" and all the seagulls yelling "MINE! MINE! MINE!"  This movie was a favorite with some of the grandchildren so I have got to see it plenty of times!  
I used Graphic 45 'By the Sea' for the plaid paper.  I used several different die cuts for the different foliage.  The little real starfish and shells really add dimension to the front of the card.  I colored the image with copics and inked all edges with TH Stormy Sky ink pad. 

I chose this pattern when I saw a card on Pinterest made this way.  I really like how it folds flat but is so 3-D when standing.  I think I may fill the bottom part with salt water taffy when I send it on it's way.

Thank you so much for stopping by and please visit our challenge blog and join in the fun this round!  I would love to see everyone there enjoying the "movies" with us!
