Dancing Dolphins

Happy Easter Everyone!
I'm not sure where the last week has disappeared to but I'm back with a little card I made that I'd like to enter into the Simon Says Stamp challenge which, this week, is to use wet or dry embossing techniques on your work. I used a dolphin stamp from the Tales of the Ocean stamp set which I stamped in black ink onto three little panels of card which I'd coloured first with blue Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I then triple embossed each panel to make them look enamelled and used a variety of mats to layer them up onto a tall card. The turquoise mirri card mats are from American Crafts and the little sentiment was printed from my computer. I think this type of card is great for both men and women and would suit a number of occasions - handy to have in your greetings card stash - especially when you need a card in a hurry...or you've forgot!
I would also like to enter this card into Creative Inspirations 'Pets/Animals' challenge and Cupcake Craft Challenge which this week is to use lots of layers.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Bye for now
