Counting Seagulls

 There is a pretty new monthly challenge blog called River of Creativity and while other challenges are closing they are struggling for support and entries so hope you canfind the time to join in this month-the challenge is Wildlife but if you are making Christmas cards images of Penguins and Reindeers would fit too.

My card has been evolving over a few weeks---okay months.I made the B.paper months ago using a selection of inks and stamps.

I stamped the image from Crafty Individuals twice and fussy cut one of the seagulls out of P.paper to add to the sign.I also stamped the wooden sign post onto wood affect paper and paper pieced.

The stamped sentiment and shell were gifted to me in a card swap a couple of years ago.

I love this image and bought it after seeing it used by Sandra so hope it fits the challenge.

    I love your card, the seagulls are unusual and make a lovely masculine card - something we all need in our repertoire. Your backing paper is gorgeous, you are so talented.
