Calming Green & Blue

Hello peeps! Well, it's cold here... perfect for crafting & blogging! I will definately be getting cosy in my craft room later! It's too cold for anything else!

I just wanted to share this little card which I made... I've used my fave colours, so calming... that's maybe why my last three cards are green!? The little fisherman is a clear stamp from Prima... I was kindly sent it by my friend Dianascarlett... thank you so much! I've coloured him with Distress Inks... it's been ages since I used these! I love the wash effect we can achieve with these! The papers are old ones from Papermania. You can buy the stamp and Distress Inks in 'A Scrap Affair' Online Store as well as lots of other lovely crafty goodies!

I'm entering this card for the challenge at:
Simon Says Stamp - Happy Birthday
Colour Create - Greens/Olive Green, Brown, Cream, Black
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Slugs, Snails & Puppy Dogs Tails

Well, hope you have a lovely weekend... especially those visiting the craft event in Harrogate this weekend (I am so jealous)!

Coucou ! J'aime bien cette carte qui donne envie d'évasion, de calme, très jolie !
Il a fait beau ici, le soleil a un peu joué à cache-cache mais les grands froids disparaissent petit à petit...j'ai besoin de soleiiiil !
