My son's grandad is having an operation today and my partner is going over to see him (it's his stepfather). I made this card as quickly as I could so he can take it with him.

I stamped the sea, boat and birds and sponged the sky and then sponged the sea very lightly with the same ink. The porthole was cut on the Silhouette. I added some shimmer pen to the waves.

I'd like to enter:

As you Like it  tbh I don't have a favourite colour - I love them all. But blue was my favourite for this card as it works for the sky and the sea and it suggests peace and optimism.
