gettin fishy with it

today is another card that i made, and it's for my very first challenge with retro sketches! i don't know how i missed their challenge blog so far, but i have! lol!

anyway, love the sketch! i had so much fun with it!

i used lawn fawn's 'critters in the sea' for the paper pieced, little goldfish, so cute! and of course harold's abc's for the sentiment. the fishes are also popped up, can't have a project of mine go by without dimension now can we?

i am loving combining the cutesy images of stamps with the 'real'/textured background paper. it makes the images really pop, and i love it! not to mention, i think these colors are so fun together! 

so i used some washi tape from danielle's stash on this card - her washi tape collection was my inspiration the whole 12 hour crop! ha ha! i kept it right near my table so i could look at it and get inspired! :)

the edge of the color block on my card is cut from the amy tangerine sketchbook collection. one of the papers has a bunch of 'borders' so i cut one out for my edge! 

anyway, love this card!
