Just Keep Swimming

Good morning and happy Earth Day! I do have a card that I made the kids to share later but I was planning on making a earth day treat to go with it so hopefully I will post that later!
For now, I have a cute card to share! I have been watching some card making videos on you tube just for some inspiration and I came across Mary from CardzTV...there is a blog and she has some really fun stamp sets. I decided to join the challenge...make something and use buttons! Well I was looking through my newest Cricut cartridge Animal Antics and I saw the phrase "just keep swimming" and I knew I had to use it! My kids sin that every time they go swimming and it's from the movie "Nemo" one of our favorites!
Supplies used: Animal Antics cartridge, DCWV citrus stack, cream cardstock, buttons, adhesive.
Here are the cuts from the cartridge:
Page 64:underwater background 5.5 inches
Page 24: just keep swimming 2.75 inches (I only used 2 layers)
Page 24: snorkeling fish 4 inches

That completes this adorable card...I love the papers from the citrus stack... Picking colors is often a problem for me, but this bright stack made it simple. I love the cuts and the idea of the background all layed out on the cartridge is a great idea! Hope you like it too! And thanks CardzTV for the inspiration!
