Vibrant You're Sublime ~ CCMC368 & RS176

Good Thursday!  It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  We've got a vibrant color challenge for you this week.  

I wanted to go in a fun direction with these fun colors so I chose to use {You're Sublime}.  This is the first time this little submarine has seen ink and it sure was fun to color!  I used my blender pen and ink pads.  
I also chose to use the sketch 176 from Retro Sketches.  It worked perfect with my little submarine scene!
I do have a small confession to make....I didn't have any Tangerine Tango paper, so I had to go with Pumpkin Pie.  The Pumpkin Pie DSP I used is actually from the retired paper pack Polka Dot Parade.  It's a shade of orange anyway!  There is a little strip of scalloped orange beneath the polka dot piece.  I used the Dotted Scalloped border punch, which now that I look at the new catalog I see has been retired as well.  I'm not doing so hot here.  OOPS!
Let's focus on what IS new or current!  
The Cucumber Crush DSP is from the new Cherry on Top paper stack.  I cut out a circle in Pacific Point CS with my circle die, and then ran it thru the big shot using the new Elegant Dots EF.  I like how it gives kind of a bubble effect.
I fussy cut the cute little submarine and fish after I colored them and popped them up on dimensionals.  I also added some Crystal Effects to the submarine windows.  

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
