Onto todays card - this is a commission I made for a friend last week - her father and step mum were moving onto a houseboat - called the Seahorse - she wanted something with a seahorse theme and this is what I came up with.
I used the Karen Burniston flip accordion album diefrom sizzix for the card shape and decorated it using card I had coloured with distress inks then embossed using sheena douglass embossing folder from the last release. Then I swept cactus green staz-on over the top. The seahorses are from a sheena douglass stamp - I used my brayer to reverse the orientation of the second seahorse. The charms are all from That Craft Place.
I stamped the wording on the front but had to use the computed for the central sentiment. The ribbon and lace came from my mums stash - thanks mum - especially for the lace which I know is your favourite xxx
