You Caught My Heart

Happy Saturday from Polkadoodles, UK,  and the Design Team. Today we are sharing 'Winter Sports' cards.  

Being from South Carolina, our winters are very mild compared to many places.  However one of the advantages  of living on Lake Murray is we always have lots of fishing tournaments and many boats of fishermen in our view.   Based on that, I decided on a 'winter' fishing card for today. 

I selected "Ice Fishing" from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection.

While Octavia would make a cute card all by herself, I wanted more of a 'scene' for this project.  Back on Polkadoodles for a search and I found the Igloo image.  This would be a perfect background image for my card scene.

After placing the two images where I wanted them using Photoshop Elements, I printed the image on 110# Neenah cardstock.  

With purple being my favorite color, this was a fun image to create using Copic markers.  It's the first time I've used shades of purple to pink to make the sky, I'm sure you'll see that again in future cards.  

When I went to mat the card, I couldn't decide on aqua blue or purple...such decisions....  So I matted in the aqua blue and made the card base in the deep purple.   

The sentiment came from Polkadoodles, Love Always Sentiments, which I printed separately.  I secured the sentiment at the bottom left and added the bling 'snow' to complete the design. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
