Fish 'n flowers

It's such a beautiful sunny, calm evening out there. Pity it hadn't been more like it at the Antrim Agricultural Show earlier today!  It was a bit drizzly and damp, but it could have been worse and it was lovely to have a dander round with Mum and see all the animals up close.

I'm lovin this porthole die I got from MFT recently - I've doubled the layer here just to give it a bit of dimension.  Not so happy with my colouring on the fish, think it was just the wrong colour choice.  Bonus points though for using these ric rac dies I got aaaaaaages ago and never use, I kinda thought they'd look like waves.

I've no sympathy cards in my stash, so need to get a few of these made.  
I've gone for this good old Whipper Snapper stamp, bit of a go-to one for sympathy cards!  Not sure of make of diamond DP.  Flowers coloured with water color pencils, and some sparkle added to the blooms.  I hadn't intended to add so many gems but had some inky marks that needed disguising ;)

Well, I think your fish looks awesome! I happen to like your color choices. And, yes, your rickrack die-cuts do look like waves. Your sympathy card is beautiful, too, btw.
