Koi Anniversary Card


I have not used my Cricut machine in a while, so I put it to good use today and made this card:

I used Cricut Art Nouveau cartridge to cut out Koi fish and the water Lily.

I cut off the flourishes from the Lily so that I can fit it onto the card...

The top base layer was created using MFT stencil and DecoArt Crackle paste...

One more look at the card and the box it comes with...

I would like to enter my card into following challenges:

Bitten By The Bug 2 "Think Green" (I used 3 shades of green on lily flower leaves)

Diecut Divas March Challenge "For the Love of Animals"

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by...
