It's Fishy

Another concertina card but more of a men's theme this time. I quite like this shape, fun to decorate too.

The background card has been done in green shades patterned card. I did think should it be blues but on a recent holiday we went snorkelling for the first time and I have to say the corals and rocks were more greens and yellows than blue. So that's the reason for my choice.

I have used the Creative Expressions Heart spray die to make my coral fronds. Looks just the right shape to me. And the fish are Jolee;s stickers.  I think they're great. I will add my greeting on the front at a later date.

Floral Concertina

After a long absence from my blog, been so busy with other things, I thinks it's about time I got back to using it. 

This card made with some inspiration from a group of friends, we get together regularly to make cards and inspire one another. Also to just have a good old gossip.

Much easier to make than it looks, just a little cutting and folding. Then it been decorated with lots of die cut leaves and flowers.
