Its the time of month for my DT post for Crafting Cafe and to host the blog over there today too :) 
Our wonderful sponsors this month, are LEJ Designs  

We were given a few fab images to pick from and I used the image 'Sea Horse'

I added some seaweed and bubbles before printing out the digi. These were then painted with perfect pearls so they were nice and shimmery. I used a green and gold for the seaweed as its never fully green is it! ;p

The space to the right was a little too empty, so I made a cute little sea horse charm from shrink plastic. I did this by tracing the edge of my seahorse image onto the plastic and cutting it out. I then inked it with distress ink to give it a faint purple colour and shrunk it with my heat gun. He got a little bit curled and stuck together, so please excuse his deformed nose...hehe...I thought he still looked cute though!

I needed to add the twine to attach the sea horse too, but I think it really suits the card as it looks like the water above the seahorses :)

I added a neutral sentiment as this could be a male or female card. I helped the lettering to pop by embossing with clear embossing powder.

I hope you will be inspired to enter our CAS Challenge and don't forget to check back later in the month for more DT inspiration

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's projects that have been and will be displayed throughout the month
