Oh Scrap!? Let's Throwdown some Color!!

I purchased this cute Digi Stamp from Whimsie Doodles ( I think the fish are soo adorable!!) and when I saw the colors in the Color Throwdown Challenge I thought it was the perfect time to dig out some scraps and make a card for both Color Throwdown and Whimsie Doodles February Challenge Oh Scrap!
With the circle shape and the roughly gathered sheer white ribbon around it, it gives the feeling that they are hanging out in a fish bowl, happy to "Sea" each other while out for a swim =)  (I wonder if fish drink coffee... ; ))
I layered gray and yellow cardstock,
(the yellow roughly torn at the edges), then cut circles from orange and blue scraps.  I added sheer white ribbon and 3 tiny white brads at two of the corners.  All paper and embellishments are Close to My Heart.  The Digi stamp is Whimsie Doodles colored in with Tombow markers.

Thanks for stopping by!!
