Octopus Mother's Day Card

Hey Kadoodle Bug Fans,

I hope you had a fantastic day today!! : ) It was such a beautiful spring day here. I got to spend some time outside today and watched a woodpecker for a little bit. I love to go outside, especially in the springtime when it's not so hot. 
So, todays project is an ocean themed Mother's Day Card.  I used a combination of two files for this project. The first file is the You are my Squishy and the second is Princess Narwhal from Kadoodle Bug Designs.

When I was a little kid, my favorite movie was The Little Mermaid. Now it would have to be Finding Nemo or Finding Dory. I just loved all the colors that they show in the ocean. I would constantly draw pictures of the ocean and make it really colorful. Dreaming of the day that I would finally get to see the ocean in person. That dream finally came true the summer of 2015. Yay!! : )
 I had so much fun creating this card!! The more I worked on it, the more excited I became and couldn't wait to see the finished result. So to create this card I combined two files You are my Squishy and Princess Narwhal. I used the Princess Narwhal file for the seaweed, starfish, shells, and I'm going to say coral. I'm not sure if that was coral or not but I made it coral for my card. Then I used the You are my Squishy file to make the Momma octopus and the little girl octopus.
