CardMaker Blog Team Hop

Hi there!

Today I am participating in my first blog hop as part of the CardMaker Blog Team.  How exciting!

This month we were challenged to create a card inspired by a song.  I went old school on you guys - can you guess what song my card was inspired by?

Yep - Yellow Submarine, a Beatles classic! (I am a huge Beatles fan, which I completely attribute to my parents - I knew song lyrics when I was just a little girl). It is definitely one of my favorite makes-you-happy-to-sing-it songs!

Here is the card in full:

Isn't the blue ombre fun?  Sky of blue and sea of green in my yellow submarine!

The submarine and other complimentary images are from the Half Pint Heroes set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. Got into some serious fussy cutting with those little fishes, but it was well worth it!

I'm so glad you've stopped by today, please make sure you hop on over to visit the other Blog Team members!
