Just Keep Swimming....

I love this saying and love the movie (Finding Nemo), it's a super cute way to say "Hang in There" and to give some encouragement.  I made this card with a freebie stamp and sentiment from The Alley Way Stamps, they are sponsoring the challenge over at Retro Sketch.  I haven't played  with Retro Sketch but love finding new sketch and challenge blogs (at least new to me).  So here is the sketch, and then my card

just keep swimming

I used paper from Cosmo Cricket-Snorkel line, the image is from Alley Way Stamps, I used a circle punch to create the border on the orange paper, colored with copics, used some glossy accents on the fish eye and done!!  I love that fish, it is so cute!

Entering in the following challenges:
