A Tear In The Ocean

Feast your eyes on this gorgeous digi.  My friend Kim Hecker over at Oak Pond Creations drew this and I fell in love.  I was not sure what kind of card I was going to make with it, I only knew I had to have Anchor Under Water !!!!  You can too if you click here.  The digi is so beautiful that I wanted something simple and elegant.  I wasn't in a cutsie mood so I decided to give it a little more formal setting.   I tried to make the simplicity of the card hi-light the beauty of the image.  I think I did, please let me know what you think.  Go ahead, I can take it!  The sentiment is one I found on a website and forgot to make note of where.  It is gone forever now in a vast search engine called GOOGLE lol.  This is actually the inside of the card.

Here is a picture of the outside.  I embossed using the Cuttlebug Kassie's Brocade folder.  Tag is punched out of vellum and the sentiment was computer generated.  I punched out the center of the card with the same Labels 21 Spellbinder's Die and covered the back of the paper with velum.  I wrapped the top and bottom with some sheer white ribbon from AC Moore.  The vellum made it difficult to photograph, so I will give you a closeup  picture of the look.

Hope you enjoy.  Be sure and pop over to Oak Pond Creations and see all the goodies Kim has designed.  I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
