Under the Sea

Had a lovely day yesterday - crafting all day at a friends. Managed to make 4 cards so will have a few posts if I can drag myself awayfrom the Jubilee Celebreations. So glad I have the weekend off work, lets just hope the rain holds off.
This lovely digi image is one i won in a Craft your Passion challenge. She is call ed MerMae and is from I coloured her with copics - my collection is steadily growing. I used the circle spellbinders around the image. I had a few challenges in mind when thinking about this cards design.
The card design is using a sketch this week from Sassy Cheryl's Digi Stamps Challenge Blog. For the backing strips I used contrasting pieces of coloured card which I ran through my Xcut crimper to give a wavy sea effect. Again using my circle spellbinders die I crimped and embossed more smaller circles to which I added a sentiment and to shells.

These flowers are handmade using a set of flower punches from Tonic Studios - petal pairs. The pins are from the Hobbyhouse and the dolphin and seahorse are from a long forgotton jewellery set my daughter had when she was about six (14 years ago!) - hows that for utilising old stuff.  I am entering this card in the following challenges -
