Fishing You A Great Day!

Hi everyone ... after a weeks break it is time for another challenge with my goofy CCEE friends on SCS ... being the last Monday of the month this week we had a supply challenge. My friend Cindy was responsible for sending us the supplies this month and I have to say I was very happy with the supplies ... they were fun ... this is what we all received:
  • 2 pieces of double sided DP
  • 3 olive brads
  • 1 length of olive ribbon
  • 1 large star
  • 2 skinny strips of DP
The instructions which were included with the supplies told us we had to use all the supplies included the DP, brads, ribbon and large star to create our card .... we were also instructed that we had to include a fish and it had to be in a circle .... after double checking with Cindy before creating my card I did discover we didn't need to use the skinny strips ... they were just cut off the side of the DP so it would fit in the envelope and of course Cindy had included just to stir us hehe!

I started my card by selecting a fish stamp I have had for years ... cut out my circles using my circle nestabilities and stamped my image onto the white circle. I used my distressed stripes cuttlebug embossing folder to add texture to my olive stripe along the bottom which I layered onto my dot dp. I added my ribbon across the olive panel. I stamped my verse ... one word at a time onto my star and attached that using foam tape onto my card. The brads I added to the top left corner of the card.

Stamps: Fish & sentiment - Rubbernecker
Paper: White; Old Olive; Night of Navy - SU; Confetti DP - My Minds Eye
Other: Black Ink; Distress Stripes Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Circle Nestabilities; Ribbon; Olive Brads; Star; Foam Tape
