Return from the sea


Hope you are all enjoing this gorgeous sunshine which has finally come our way. I have a fairly simple but I think very effective card to share today. I have used an image from Delicious Doodles, which I love. The paper is from my use up stack. I love to use striped way this way, by using the two strips which I cut off and which are normally thrown away. Use them on your base paper by lining the stripes up the opposite way. I added a Craftwork Cards sentiment, baker's twine and a charm from EBay.
