Your bowl or mine??

Mmmmwah!!! Ain't they the cutest fishies ever??? This is "Fish in Love" from Taylored Expressions. They're just one of the many Stamps A La Carte Taylored Expressions just released. I used my little fish for a cute Valentine's card but you could use them for an anniversary card or a real sappy smoochy-smoochy card for the MAN in your life! Hmmmm?? Ok, I'm with ya, anniversary is good! LOL!
Ok, so I was working with the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #99 for my card. I really liked this sketch. I don't know what it is about circles, but I love them nestled in a card like this.
I started with some SU Real Red CS and adhered this polka dot DP from My Minds Eye. I used a coordinating sheet and cut a partial circle out of it with my Nesties. I adhered this piece with several dimensionals for a really cool 3D effect. I used the next size smaller Nestie for the image itself and embossed the edges too. I colored these little fishies with my Copics and popped them up with a few dimensionals as well. To finish, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom and tied on this yummy red saddle stitched ribbon! Blub, blub, blub, be sure to leave a comment below and tell me what you think, blub, blub!! Have a SUPER Tuesday! {{{hen hugs}}}
