Better Late than Never...Crafty Calender challenge!

Sorry this is days late, i should have had it posted in Saturday morning. I have had one of those weeks where nothing happens as it should and along with that i am not feeling great at all. Still retaining water and look like i have someone else's legs!

Anyway let me tell you about the new challenge at Crafty Calender. The theme this month is
Under the Sea!!
What a fab theme for the gorgeous weather we are having right now. (I am sitting in the garden as i post this and its burning hot!)

This month our sponsor is a store that i couldnt live without... Its Wild Orchid Crafts.

The prize is a pile of coloured flowers and a few packets of pearls. Something that us crafters are always in need off!!!

For my card i have used WRMemory keepers & Lot and Found MME papers and Kraft cardstock.
My Tilda image is coloured with Promarkers. I have used my Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, bakers twine and seam binding. The charm i used is has a story behind it. Its actually a recycled earring which i thought mimicked the underwater bubbles. We have just had a large warehouse open near our home so we went to have a look and there were lots of great bargains. I came across a missive box that was full of jewellery. I had a rake and found so many things i could take apart to use as charms and embellishments. Even pearl necklaces that could be taken apart to use the beads. The jewellery was all from Argos, Boots and a few other named shops and i assume it was old stock. This was my new stock! Each item was under 50p so this was my bargain of the month!
Anyway back to my card, the leaves are from my Cricut Wild Card Cart and the anchor from my Pot pourri cart. My gems from my stash.
