An Oldie on Friday

Happy Friday Everyone.

First today I'd like to say hello to Sharon who recently joined me here.  A very warm welcome to you.

My "Oldie" card today was made  several years ago  for our friend Allan.

I coloured the background of the card with distress inks before iris folding the dolphin with silver paper.

I added a googly eye a few shells and a little glitter glue.  The sentiments are by Hobby Arts.

I'm linking my oldie up to Erika's Scappy Crafts blog where she invites us to post something crafty and old just for fun.  If you link up with Erika and leave a comment she'll return the favour.

Oh, Barb, I love iris folding! Haven't done it in ages but it was one of the first techniques I learned when I took a cardmaking course way-back-when! Your little fish is darling! Adorable card!

Your Iris folded dolpin is lovely. Using all silver for the folds is perfect. I did a fish one a while back which was fun to do. Hugs Mrs A.
