Howdy Crafters - I was wanting to make an ocean type card and this is what I came up with after finding this black and white patterned paper in my scrap box. I added some fish die cuts, and a stamp sentiment - colored the sentiment with water color and glued the mat to white card base - I am happy with the results - thanks for stopping by and blessings to you for the weekend! Enjoy - Gail

White cardstock for base of card
