Glue coral to the front bottom and sides and cut off excess from 1 side (save it). Glue sand color card stock, shells, more coral to the bottom, divided layer tabs. Glue plant life mainly on the sides of opening and a little on the back layer.

Stamp sentiment onto decorative water paper then circle cut. Cut a white mat a little larger, then glue them together and glue to the back water scene. Pop up fish around the sentiment. Apply Nuvo drops as bubbles on the background coming from the coral and the fish.

Re-construct box now gluing the back tabs onto the back of the back scene. Cover with set aside 6 1/8 x 6 1/8" decorative paper (or plain white cardstock). Once glue is set, decorate the top of box with the leaves and flowers. Glitter all the flowers, add pearls around in coral and in shell. Use Nuvo Shimmer brush on the fish.

Merry Christmas is my favorite in this collection. I love the composition of this card. But I have to say that Oak Berry Roses are certainly beautiful as are the flowers on Camelia's Wishes. Great work!

Veronique's Oakberry roses are stunning! Thanks for this lovely inspiration to use petal layers other than the traditional rose. Beautiful floral display!
