Just Because

Here's a card i made yesterday just because. 
I was saying the other day to a friend that most of my blogging seems to be DT stuff lately .
So i thought i'd take the time out to make a card just because i love the images .
If you haven't bought any from here you haven't lived . The images are fabulous and they have something for everyone. Where is it i hear you ask . Delicious Doodles i've linked the store to their name . 
I love them and am lucky enough to work with Teri's images at Glitternsparkle and at One Stitch at a Time . 

Anyway Here is my Card 

I used an image called Sunset at sea 
I thought i'd give it to my Father in Law as he always says you can't beat watching the sun set at sea. 

Coloured with my trusty promarkers 

It was matted onto yellow card from my stash 
Then i used 2 shades of blue card and a beautiful blue swirly pattern which reminded me of the sea.

I added silver peel offs to the top 2 corners 

I then added brads with the letters DAD on to some pearl card then stuck that underneath.

I'd like to enter the following challenges :- 

Delicious Doodles  - For the Boys 

Daisy Doodles - Anything Goes 

Allsorts Challenge - Things with Wings
