Best Fishes

I got a request to make some blank cards with an ocean theme. I ended up playing with the little fish image from an old Sale-A-Bration set called "Very Punny". I have to admit that I *had* to have this cute little set, but have found it very difficult to use. I was pretty happy with how this card came out since I usually have a difficult time with small images.
First I stamped three of the fish in a row and colored them with my Copics. It was a little boring and lacking, so I stamped a few more fish onto scraps, cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals. Much better....

I used my 1 3/8 circle to make the waves with the teal paper, layered it and then added blue Stickles to the edges.
The yummy teal ribbon was wrapped around the entire front of the card. I used a craft knife to cut a slit in the fold of the card and pulled the ribbon through.
This is what the ribbon looks like from the inside.

Don't forget to check out my sketch for this week. You have until next Wednesday to send me a link to your card so I can share it with everyone!

I love this card!
And I have to tell you, I love this set. I was all ready to part with it until I did a little party with some children. Using the circle punches and the scallop punch we used this set to make a cover for suckers. The Tickled Pink and Udderly... are perfect for boys and girls! I have also used the Crib Notes for a mass baby shower thank card gift.
I am now adding your card to my favourites.

That is the cutest card! I never think to only use a portion of the stamp. I'll be looking at my punny set (and others)differently from now on.

This is absolutely adorable! Love how you popped the fish up on dimensionals. It really adds so much to the card.

Absolutely love the color combo! It caught my eye immediately! The fish on the dimensionals add depth to the image too!
