Finding Nemo

I just love this movie don't you? There is a story attached to this card so let me tell you it. I will make it as short as possible. I was looking at stamps online one day a couple of months back and came across this cool one with seagulls at Whipper Snapper and thought to myself that it would make a cool card if ever they chose Finding Nemo for the Cinema Saturday Challenge so I promptly put the stamp on my wish list where I then promptly forgot about it. Till that is I checked the challenge for this week (Challenge #54) and lo and behold there was Finding Nemo as this weeks movie choice. Straight away I went and ordered the stamp as I really really wanted to do this card. Today it finally arrived and I quickly made this card. There was a color guide for it that I totally missed in my excitement and I'm not completely sure I like it 100%, simple cards are very hard for me these days. I keep looking at it thinking somethings missing. My sentiment is improvised and I know that in the movie the birds apparently say "mine" not "mate" but it suited the card better.

Thanks for looking
