Shark

It's my grandson's birthday next weekend. I recently bought him some bedding with sharks on it, so I wanted to do a card on the same theme. 

I found an image of a shark on a website of children's colouring-in pages.I coloured it in and paper- pieced it. All the papers are leftovers from Cosmo Cricket 'Salt Air' and the number eight is a sticker that I coloured to match (if you can call grey a colour!) . I stuck the shark on using Papermania springs - they don't seem very flexible so I'm not sure how I'd get it into an envelope - good job I'll see him on the day and don't need to send it through the post!

I'd like to enter this for:

  2. What a cool card - young boys are usually very fascinated by sharks. Great paper piecing and love how you've created the sea too.
