Birthday Fishes and a Thank-you



Made this card for the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS this weekend.  You can check out Brenda's card I cased HERE.  I loved how she used tissue paper and burlap.  I skipped the tissue paper and changed my images and colors.  My images are from SU!



This one was one of the many thank you cards I made this weekend using the colors of my daughter's wedding.  I made a lot of papers and some had more brown and some had more pink but they all came out super interesting.  I used the Inspiration and MIX challenges on SCS for some extra inspiration on this one.  Used four mediums as that was the MIX challenge.  My mediums are water color, Stickles, Ink, and gel pen. 

I had a very relaxing weekend - hope you did as well.

  1. Nancy, I love, love, love your fisherman card. The burlap is the ideal material to go on this card. Your thank you card is so gorgeous with the colors and your little flowers. I like the idea of using the twine in the manner you did. It's like tying up the last part of the wedding, the all important thank you cards. Two wonderful pieces of inspiration. Glad you had a relaxing weekend. I did also, did some work on the deck and planted some flowers in my gardens. Good thing I did it this weekend because it is going to be in the 90's all week here. It's too early for those kinds of temps around here. LOL

  3. Nancy, I'm in love with both of these! The first one is absolutely beautiful (and actually, so is the second one too). I love the fish and with the burlap and blue, it just couldn't be prettier! Love that second one too!! What a beautiful way to say thank you to someone.
