Not the last day of February this year!

It is always seems weird to me the concept of "leap years" and why we felt the need to invent them. There is probably a very valid reason but one that's obviously not captivate me though!

It's ICSketches day again a we had yet another great sketch to use . .


and here is what I created after rotating the sketch 90 degrees clockwise . . .

Paper: Polka Doodles (Pen and Paper Circle)
Stamps: Pink Petticoat
Dew drops: Polka Doodles
Gems: MEI
Seaweed (!): MME

I have had these Pink Petticoat freebie stamps for ages and routed them out as I fancied doing a bit of stamping. The sketch helped me create my underwater themed card and have to say, am loving the mixture of the dew drops and gems as my fishy bubbles. I also discovered these vines by MME whilst tidying out my ribbon drawers and they make brilliant seaweed.

I also learnt a valuable lesson whilst making this card - make sure your items are stuck down securely before adding glaze otherwise it cracks when it dries and you try to restick it in to place!
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
