Horses of the Sea -- Pilin' on ALL the Animals

The themes this month at Pile It On are Land Animals and/or Sea/Water Animals. You can choose one or both themes, and you may enter the challenge as many times you like, as long as you are inspired by at least one other Challenge theme. We're sponsored by A Day for Daisies, and I used the lovely Seahorse.

I used the font GoodDog for the Rumi quote: "You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop."The frame is a die/embossing set from Cuttlebug. I filled it with blue glitter, confetti stars, and glass beads. I also used some real fishing net. I decorated the inside too.
Cuttlebug Mania: (Tue) New + dies [shaped confetti in shaker]
Do-Al(l) Kreatives #25: (P1) Think Twice [two seahorses]
Make My Monday (Mon) #87 Use Words/Sentiment [Rumi quote]
Paper Shelter Challenge: (Wed) Use Digital Image
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: (Mon) Recycle [frame is made from scrap cardboard; die-cut seahorse is made from a soda can]
Try Stamping on Tuesday: (Tue) Mix It Up Challenge [Sketch]

Update: This was chosen as a Top 3 for TSOT #391!
