Still in LOVE with Aqua!!!

AND my hubby of twenty years!!!! Gord's birthday is next Sunday, so I thought I better get going and make him his B-Day card!! Hope he thinks "aqua" is a "manly" colour LOL!! I personally think it can play both sides....that doesn't sound to good hahahaha.


I am LOVING the current challenge at CAARDvarks, it is this sketch by Becky Fleck:



So here is my card, inspired by the beautiful Cuban waters :)


I once again pushed myself to pull out some "older" stamps to use....it really is helping me with my quilt over getting so many new ones LOL!! All the strips are made using Hero Art stamps and Tim Holtz Distress Inks in colours Broken China and Walnut Stain.

Supplies:
Hero Arts stamps: CL139 Birthday Messages, S5141 Four Leaf Grid, LP128 Artistic Windows, S5101 Raindrop Background, S5216 Grid Pattern, and CG125 Friend Definition.
Paper: PTI
Martha Stewart punch
recycled buttons

Thanks for stopping by, Have a FANTASTIC day!!!
Hugs,
TRace
