Getting fishy again

Virginmedia broadband is down this afternoon so i'm using my iPad with 3G with blogpress - although i've had this for some time I haven't used it much and am not that familiar with it - finding it's much more fiddly to link urls than it is normally - it's all good practice.

Having made the previous card I had the final card of the fish pack out and it seemed silly to put it away again so I've made another fishy card, this time embossing with the cuttlebug d'vine swirls folder and swiping with stormy sky and shabby shutters distress inks. The sentiment is once again made on my Letratag label maker.

You can't really see it on the photo, but I used a metallic silver pen to fill in the wavy cut outs and the eye.
