Now if you remember back to my shopping trip where I met my mousey sister Christine (Nanaseaside) and I showed you my new HM stash :) well I could not resist, this is the stamp that Matt bought me, his treat he said.  Well it just had to be fishing didn't it and well he only fishes in Summer so perfect for our theme.
I made a note let, I adore this style of card, rapidly becoming a firm favourite of mine.

The base is made from the largest grand nestie scallop with the smaller circles and scallops layering in.  I die cut lots of dies in the brown main colour added some Wild Orchid Crafts freebies from my last order, some flowers from stash and a little bow to finish, I know not one pearl or stickles in sight.

Here is the close up of the image called Fish Tails available from 
I have coloured in copics using BG01 and my blender to create the water and just touched my BG000 on the surface around the plants.  The flowers are coloured in the purple Atyou glitter pen.

Any way why are you still here?? hurry off to your craft rooms and get out your cute critters  - remember any of the HM images will be just perfect and I hope to see you soon at the challenge.
