Red black and grey in the sea....

Just a quick post tonight so I can get in a couple of challenges before the deadlines pass - but tonight's the first time I've had the energy to craft this week after the fayre at the weekend.

I wanted to play in the secret saturday challenge "in the sea" with my new papertrey whale set and I thought it would make a nice, if somewhat unusual, masculine card if I did it with the colours of our creative corner's colour challenge - black, grey and neutrals with a pop of red.

A very simple card to make - I just cut some different grey papers with fancy cut scissors to create my sea, stamped my whale in london fog ink and cut with the matching die.  I added red hearts out of his blow hole and a matching red sentiment for the required "pop" of red.

Back later with my DT card for our new challenge at St Luke's Charity Card Challenge.
