PTI Spring Fling Challenge

7:28 AM

Hi everyone :-) It's already Monday again and high time to share my card for the Spring Fling Challenge over at Nichole Heady's blog. Really, I loved all of the inspirational photos and could have done at least one card with every single one of them. However, my last PTI order is sitting somewhere in a customs office -> I'm lacking some ingredients for my ideas - but they will be there very soon and I will post the one or the other idea here on the blog :) Anyway, inspiration for the card finally came from the small pillow on Becky Oehlers' photo ...
... and a CD cover I saw a while ago (sorry, I don't remember what it was) where somebody put a seahorse toghether only with dots, dots and even more dots! Here's my try:

Sorry for the bad picture, it's just not very sunny at the moment. In reality, the colors pop! Also I used some sticky foam dots to give dimension to the seahorse cut-out but that's barely visibile on that picture, too.
I don't know now for what purpose this card will be, so I left out the sentiment. It reminds of a road trip along the Australian east coast some years ago... *sigh* I guess, I'll send it to a friend who goes snorkling this summer.

Thanks for looking and have a good work week!
