Water, water everywhere

The topic on 365 cards today is Imagine this: 'water', so here are three cards that have some on them!

The background paper is PDA.

I'm also linking for My Time to Craft 54: it's raining men!

Ruby Wedding Anniversary card

I was asked by a friend to make a Ruby Wedding Anniversary card. This is the invitation she received and she asked if I could do something appropriate that would compliment it.

I would normally associated Ruby Wedding with red rather than blue, but managed, hopefully, to combine to make this card.

The gatefold card blank is an ivory irridescent with a hint of a blue sheen. I didn't have any blue hearts, so I chalk inked some white ones.

I chose a font to match up with the invitation and added the embellishment in the middle with just a hint of red:

Unfortunately, the photos don't do it justice. The top right heart is the same colour as the bottom left one, although here it looks different!
This week's ABC challenge is H for hearts, so this is appropriate for that.
Yesterday I found the Creative Card Crew challenge blog and, although it's officially too late, I'm linking for their challenge 2: no paper, keep it clean, because I haven't used any patterned paper.
