Water, Water everywhere.....

Happy Wednesday everyone.
A very happy day here in South Africa as we are having a holiday today...Human Rights Day. Today is also International World Water day so our challenge at DS4J this week is a Theme/Colour challenge....Blue/Water. 
My card this week is a tent card
The papers I used were from my scraps box, so no name there. The image I printed twice, coloured with H20's, for a bit of a sparkly effect. One I attached to the inside of the card and the other I hung with a small ring attached to a piece of twine across the top. It does seem to be swimming in the opening. I used the Marianne dies to create some underwater life...sea urchins, coral....and a piece of netting attached. A small seahorse charm and a tag attached with a paper clip to finish it off.

 I quite liked the final look of this card. We would love for you to join us in this challenge. You do not have to use a DS4J image, but you get an extra chance to win if you do, so please have a look at the lovely images and the cards made by the other members of the DT. Hope to see you there.

I will see if I can enter it into a challenge or two.
Love to Create Challenge...Anything goes.

Take care, I am off to enjoy the day with my family.
