Cute Card Thursday - In the water
A very good afternoon to you. It's not often I can say that as I'm usually much later in posting my card so I don't know what's happened today.
This card is for Cute card Thursday's challenge which this week is "In the water"
All my cards lately seem to have been square ones so I thought I'd have a change with this and I've used a DL sized card. The backing paper is from my stash and the cuttlebug embossing was sent to me by a crafting friend (I've only got the Swiss Dots folder at the moment) I've married these two together with a lovely green ribbon that I found in my ribbon drawer (I'm not sure where it came from but I think it may have been part of some ribbon blog candy I won from Ooh-la-la ages ago) the cuttlebug corners are from the "vintage" die set, and the flower is made up from some different Poppicraft flowers and one of their brads.
This cute little girl has been coloured with a mixture of pro-markers and pencils used with sansador (yes I risked it again!) and I've glazed the bubbles, although it doesn't show in the scan. I love the sentiment on this and although I no longer experience this feeling since retiring from work, I remember it only too well!
