Partial die cut sea

Hi crafters. I have an entry for a couple of CAS challenges before the deadline. I partially die cut this scene using, Memory Box jellyfish, Kaisercraft flora branches and fish. The sentiment is from Salt Air sentiments by Papertrey Ink. The background is a new to me stencil by Dina Wakley called Gusts.

I partially die cut using a long, thin 13inch cutting plate. The seaweed dies are actually on one plate which made it tricky. I hid a couple of imperfections with half pearls.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

CAS mix up January Challenge: Partial die cutting. My choice is stencilling.

CAS Stencil Challenge for January: Use a new stencil

Happy crafting,
