All at sea over you

I found this quote by Shakespeare and decided to make a card inspired by its verse. I have followed a sketch and used a gorgeous Sweet Pea image coloured in with my PMs. I added three buttons which are fantastic parrots ( a little piratical!) The sketch with its two triangles reminded me of the flags that a ship/boat uses to signal other sea goers.

Around the image I used a lovely fringy fibre to simulate a little movement. As I write the wind is picking up here and all the trees are creaking, sounds very like being on an old boat in a high sea, well at least how they portray it on the tv anyway.

I drew faux stitching along my 'flags' and put a pale blue insert inside, with faux stitching along its edges.

I am entering this card into :-
