Birthday Fishes

Hello my sweet blog friends!  Sorry for the lack of posts this week.  I am currently in Kentucky camping with my little family, so this is a scheduled post.  This is a bittersweet one to write because it is my last card as a Card Patterns Designer.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Michelle, Tracy and Nina and the rest of the team these last six months and will miss it tremendously.  Thank you ladies for having me, it has been such an honor!  Okay, on to today's card.  Our sponsor this week is Whimsy Doodles and I chose to play with the little Fish image.

Starting by printing it onto white card stock, coloring them in and distressing the panel, I popped one of the fish up with foam.

Covered the card front with Cosmo Cricket Salt Air papers.

Lastly, I added a bit of ribbon, some threaded buttons and a vellum scallop circle.

I hope you play along and thank you so much for stopping by!  I can't wait to catch up with all of your blogs when I return.
