Cutie Pie Dt Card - Splish, Splash, Splosh

It's time for a new challenge at Cutie Pie, this month our theme is "Splish, Splash, Splosh", so basically anything water themed, and of course cute; and we're sponsored by Crafty Sentiments and Bunny Zoe's.
I used a cute as can be Lili of the Valley stamp for my DT card, colouring it with Promarkers, adding a background with Spectrum Noir pencils, and some watery highlights with Fran-tage chunky white and glitter embossing powders.  I also added a touch of Glossy accents and Star Dust Stickles to the image.  The sentiment was stamped with a Personal Impressions stamp.
 I decided on a glittery white on white card to create a fresh, sea foam look, in contrast to the pop of colour from the image.  I created a a stamped border for the mat using a See-Ds border stamp with a sort of bubbly effect, and heat embossed with the embossing powders mentioned above.
To embellish my simple card I added some shell trim from Hobby Craft and a few white pearls.
