ABC Challenges - "W for Water"

Good Morning Crafters, welcome to a brand new month, hasnt the year flown its Christmas in a few weeks now I hope that you have started sorting out your Christmas cards, luckily I have spend three days this week getting them inserted, written and put in envelopes, but Ive still got six more to make. Anyway this months challenge is "W for Water" over on the ABC Challenge Blogspot and for this one we are being sponsored by

And here is the card I made for this Challenge.

And for the image I have used a brand new design from Marianne Designs I have printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him. Afterwards I used Heartfelt Designs Die to cut him out and a larger one for the mount. The sentiment was one I found on the internet and then printed this also onto white card and cut this out also using a Heartfelt Designs Label die.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card the 3 papers I have used are from Sweetshoppes "Make a Splash" design set, and I have used three papers, the first a blue background with splash signs on, the second a orange zig-zag pattern and this I used a border punch that looked like waves, and the third is a strip down the middle with stars on and a white background.
The mounted image was then placed in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom towards the right. The last thing was the six candi buttons that were stuck down the left hand side.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to our "ABC Challenge Blogspot" and take part in this "W for Water" Challenge and I look forward to seeing your cards or projects.
