CAS-ual Fridays...The Red Carpet

This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays...challenge38...The Red Carpet is to make a card inspired by a movie. Can you tell which movie I chose?:
I chose Finding Nemo, for when I saw the challenge and thought what to do...what to do....and thought some more...I remembered that I had this sentiment.  It is something Dorey the fish says in the movie that has become a saying for my life and one I speak to others...JUST KEEP SWIMMING!!
I used Broken China distress ink and swiped it over white paper for the ocean color.  I embossed with folder, die cut with nestie and layered on chipboard.  Used the same little fish(it is Stampin Up, but I bought him on ebay by himself, so don't know what set he's from.  He had "Best Fishes" on his stamp, but cut out just the fish.) three times and cut out.  Colored with markers and added to die cut Papertrey Ink Larger than Life die cuts.  The sentiment is Unity/Ippity(Fishy Philosophy).
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
