Don`t ever change.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am in work soon but first a card to share with you.
I had a lovely day yesterday with my laddo and i made a roast dinner for when hubby woke up.
My printer decided to have a hissy though and it was convinced it had a paper jam, i got it to work eventually.
So enough of my waffle and on to my card which i am entering into the following challenges:
1.My Time To Craft Challenge - Challenge 255 - Unusual coloured hair
2.Creative Card Crew Challenge - Challenge 68 - Embossing (heat embossed frantage)
3.Creative Inspirations Challenge - Challenge 276 - Under the sea
4.Delicious Doodles Challenge - Challenge 98 - Anything goes
6.Sketchy Colors Challenge - Challenge 221 - Sketch by Wenche
8.Pile It On Challenge - Challenge 33 - By the sea/beach

I apologise for my pics, my camera is really playing up at the mo but fingers crossed i think i may be getting a new one for my birthday :S
Products used are:
Black card
Old papers 
Distress tool
Various frantage embossing powders and some Cosmic shimmer glitter flakes
