Birthday Fishes

Hi Everyone,

I have not played in the YNS challenges in a while - always too many other challenges to participate and I kept missing the deadlines...NOT this time!!!



I don't do a lot of sketches, but I really liked that one. Ignored the color challenge - you don't have to combine the two. I first wanted to use a stencil for the water strip, but then I came upon this patterned paper, that has been in my stash now pretty much forever. Time to use it!!! It has a nice shimmer to it - does not really show in the picture.....

This is the sketch and the stamp set:

 YNS Sketch 18Snorkel Fun Fishy

I don't think that card requires a lot of explanation on how I did it. So I'll spare you that. Filled up the shaker with microbeads only to not distract from the cute fish.

Also linking up with:

Best Fishes to all of you!

Big wide smile on my face the minute I saw this terrific (& refreshing) card. Lovin' that fish, you were right not to use too much bling in the shaker. And that patterned paper is perfect.

Well you rocked this sketch. It works so well for the fish and I love that it looks like water in your shaker card. Super cute and fun! I am very happy that you had time to play along with our sketch challenge at Your Next Stamp.

The paper works beautifully with this cute fish looking out of the porthole. Love that you did this as a shaker card & the vellum was a nice touch to avoid covering up a single bit of that perfect dp. Cute design, beautifully colored, and a terrific bday card. TFS
