Second gel card attempt

Hello again,
I had to try another gel card, as fun as the first one was...I was not happy submitting it for the Tiddly Inks Challenge....and I learned alot from my first card.
I think I did better this time.
I cut out my snow globe with my cricut (I think it was doodle bug cartridge)...not sure because I used my Gypsy.
I inked my snow globe with Tim Holtz distressed inks.
I used a smaller plastic baggie and much much less hair gel.
I put Martha Stewart fine glitter in the gel and stamped a sea horse under the gel ( on the first layer of my card.....so hopefully  he looks like he is swimming happily under the sea....lol
I used a Sugar Plum stamp image for my mermaid...and this is what I got.

I am enerting this card if the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks Gel Card Challenge
Crafting for all seasons sea challenge
Try it on Tuesday beach challenge Spnsored by Once Stop Card Crafts
Make it Monday Challenge
