Best Fishes

** 6/7/16 Winner at {PIN}spirational Challenges! **

Hello there, crafty peeps! It's time for another fun challenge over at My Crafting Stories! I'm stoked to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #6 - Summer. Our sponsor this month is Lacy Sunshine Stamps and I hope you'll come join in the fun!

I chose the irresistible 'Molly Fishing' image for my birthday card. How stinkin' cute is she?! I just love her! I had the most fun picking out the papers, cardstock, ribbon and gemstones for this card while keeping it fairly simple. I added a pretty double loop bow made from satin Swiss Dots ribbon in my favorite color of green.


After I colored this adorable image with Spectrum Noir markers, I used a fun paper die to cut her out which I layered - and then layered again at an angle - on coordinating colors of cardstock. I'm just tickled with how cute this turned out!


For the inside, I used a couple scrap strips of the paper used on the front, stamped a sentiment, and then layered the panel on coordinating cardstock.


Proud to enter this sweet card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White, Wild Dandelion, Tomato Soup and Sweet Mango cardstock, patterned papers from Polly's Paper Studio
  • Stamps: Lacy Sunshine Stamps 'Molly Fishing' digi, Paper Pretties Fish Wishes stamp set, GKD Happy Birthday to You stamp set
  • Ink: Spectrum Noir- TB2, TB3, IG1, IG6, IG9, CT4, LY3, DR2, CR10, FS3, FS4, FS8, BT8, GT2, GT3, TN3, TN6, TN9, LG5, PP1, EB3, EB6; Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Dies/Punches: Paper Smooches Paper die
  • Accessories: MISTI, RRR Apple Green satin Swiss Dots ribbon, Studios Blackbird orange/black grosgrain ribbon scrap, green gemstones

I hope you've enjoyed today's project and are inspired to create something with a summer theme for our challenge this month!
