Happy Birthday

Hello there my crafty friends!  Today's background was cretaed by using Midnight Blue, Purple Violet and Lava Red Pixie Powders.  I cut the Underwater Life Frame out of green, tan and rust card.  I used the green as the base and then cut out different elements from the other colours and added them to it.  I cut the octopus and dolphin out of slate gtay and light gray card.  I cut Neptune out of white card and used Antique linen distress ink to colour him.  Next, I added his tail which I cut out of a piece of leftover green pixied card.  I added the trident in his hand out of light gray card.   The Happy Birthday came from the Scuba Diver die set which I cut in white and added to the upper corner and the Seas The Day in white on to the rock at the bottom of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 /4"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. This is a story within a greetings card. Just wish the beautiful dolphin wasn't poised over the great man's fork!
It's a real work of art, I can almost see the smiling faces of anyone receiving a card like or similar to this.

Morning Sue, that octopus is gorgeous, in fact, the whole card is brilliant and the sentiment just happens to be the one which I won. So thank you Sue for the inspiration. I do like your underwater frames.

Good Morning Sue. Firstly please forgive me if I can't post every day for the next month. We are in my most favourite place in the world and we had the most beautiful Turkish Sunrise this morning. The only thing is the WiFi connection is not good and limited to certain places where I don't always have a device to hand. So it will be hit and miss. I am so sorry.
Today's card as always is brilliant. And will suit most men and children. Thankyou. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.��
Kind Regards Ann Toppcards in my

Hi Sue, a very clever card setting a lovely scene. I agree with Steph that the dolphin does look in danger of impaling himself on Neptune's trident but I love it anyway:-)


Judy Hollers said...

I just love this underwater scene with all the colors and dimension. The paper piecing on Neptune is a lot of work but so worth it!

Hi Sue and everyone, I love this card. During the last launch this was my favourite set and reminded me so much of a fabulous film I quite recently watched. As others have said it creates a wonderful story and I think its stunning. I can see it making a wonderful card for men, women and children.
I will just have another look before I move on to the next card hehe.

Hugs Donna xx

I lost my job few months back and there was no way to get income for my family, things was so tough and I couldn't get anything for my children, not until a met a recommendation on a page writing how Mr Bernie Wilfred helped a lady in getting a huge amount of profit every 6 working days on trading with his management on the cryptocurrency Market, to be honest I never believe it but I took the risk to take a loan of $1000. and I contacted him unbelievable and I was so happy I earn $12,500 in 6 working days, the most joy is that I can now take care of my family I don't know how to appreciate your good work Mr. Bernie Doran God will continue to bless you for being a life saver I have no way to appreciate you than to tell people about your good services.
