Just Keep Swimming

Good Morning! Today's card is VERY appropriate for us because it's raining AGAIN. We've had thunderstorms alot the last couple of weeks and we're in for more today and tomorrow. All my plants love it though :)

I made this card just for fun because I LOVE the whale paper and I bought the paper frills (I know they aren't new, but I just hadn't bought them yet) and I just love this little fishy stamp from CC Designs. Soooooo, I put it all together and this is what I cam up with. The whale paper is from K&Co, the fishy stamp is available here: for $1.00! I colored my fishy with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and used flocking on the flower on her swimcap. I used my corner rounder to scallop both the white and the turquoise papers and then traced the scallop with an orange glaze pen. The Paper Frills from Doodlebug Designs are on the top and bottom of the whale paper. The stamps for Just Keep Swimming are Karen Foster snap stamps. At first I wasn't too sure about how close together they are, but the more I look at it, the more I like that. I also punched some circle from blue vellum and put them behind the fishy like air bubbles, but you couldn't see them well, so I added diamond glaze to them and now they shine. You can see them better in real life, but if you click on the picture and make it bigger you can see them too! (Also, the top of the card is really straight, the picture is at an angle that makes it look crooked - sorry :)

In other news, All That Scraps is having a HUGE sale to make room for new stuff. This is how the All That Scraps blog describes it:

We need to move out some of the slower moving items that are taking up space.

Some of the items are Cuttlekids, Disney Cuttlebug, Pattern Paper, Tins, Alterable Purses, Cardstock (Bazzil and Prism), Big Shot.

Instead of having the items in the main category they have all been moved into the *Sale*Sale*Sale* category to make it easier to find the items that are on sale.

Adorable card. I have to go and check out all that scraps to see if they have that whale paper you used. I have a layout to do that that paper would be perfect.
