Playing with a freebie!

What can be better than playing with a 'freebie'?!
That's the challenge over at GingerLoft Challenges for this 2 weeks.  We have taken a couple of
much needed weeks off and are back and raring to go.  Check out the beautiful cards the DT have
made (mine is just below), pick up the freebie for yourself and play along with us. 
Don't forget to read what Tami has to say before posting your card, she a another freebie available
just by reading her comments and doing just one little'm not telling!  Go read it!  LOL
One last note, Tami is looking for a few good DT and it could be you!  This is one of the most laid back
DTs you can be on and Tami is amazingly generous with her digis.  If you want it, she gets it to you and
if she doesn't have it, she designs it for you!  Just put DT after your name on your entry if you are interested i
joining our happy crew.
Now, on to my card using this fortnights freebie........................
Not my best pic...sorry.  The cattails are soft and fluffy.  They have brown sparkly fluff on them.  Almost makes them feel real!  The addition of the white gel pen ripples in the water give the illusion of movement.

Wow that is so pretty. The brick wall embossing folder is the perfect choice for the background for this lovely image. Love the punched border too!
