Porthole center step card

This card was made with 3 files from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons.  I love this PortHole, the file is for a full card but I chose just to use the top layers so I could put it on the center step card base (SVG Attic).  This  porthole card file was only 99 cents!  What a deal and I will be using it a lot I am guessing.  You can find all three PPPR files that I used here. I chose to use my brand new waves die (CDD) for the water inside the Porthole but the file has its own very cool cuts for the water that I did not use this time around.  

The title at the bottom is a freebie file I just received for the recent blog hop I got to hop thru.  How fun and so many fabulous projects on the hop.  The Sea Horse is the Friday freebie right now and I decided to do those as a print and cut.  The sea grass and coral along the edges of the card are just bigger versions from the ones on the under the sea title.  I added blue bling rhinestones around the title for bubbles and some assorted sized sequins scattered in the water and a die cut from spellbinders twisted metal I added to look like a pole on a buoy holding a flag to say Happy Birthday 2 U (stamp & Flag from CDD).  Oh and I almost forgot, I placed blue brads in each bolt hole... I love the look it created for the Port Hole.
Here is a side view so you can see some of the fun layering

For the inside, errrr... well back of card in this case.... I used a computer generated sentiment square, which I made up myself and added the super cute Sea Horse in printable form and added some light blue bubbles around.

This is so cute! I love how you used the porthole as the center of your card and I cannot deny how much I love those sea horses! They look super cute living in the coral pieces and also printed on the back with your "inside" sentiment!
Thanks so much for playing along with the Under the Sea Challenge at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons! Sea you later!
