I am loving the challenge of this blog and entering cards for challenges on other blogs. There are some extraordinarily talented people out there and I hesitate sometimes to add one of my cards....but we all have to start somewhere...and making cards gives me great pleasure.
This card was a challenge because I am not keen on green...I love it in Nature but it is not one of my faves....I don't think I have one item of green clothing in my wardrobe.
I used Cardstock from Paper Mill shop.
Backing Paper from some blog candy. The embossed card was done using my Big shot and a Cuttlebug folder. The Magnolia stamp is an old one...but still a favourite E840. I coloured the image with my new Promarker pens.
Finally my treasures are the fishes. I bought them from the Bead Store in Mevagissey in Cornwall with my Mum and sister Julia the week my wonderful Dad died. We sat on a bench overlooking the harbour crying from shock and grief but giving thanks for an exceptional Husband and Father.
