Good day to you all! I do love a short work week, but then again, who doesn’t? I’m looking forward to this weekend and to another short work week next week too! The last two weeks of the year are the best! Do you all have some fun New Year’s Eve plans? I’m going with some friends to a another friends house, it should be fun. It’s so funny that I live so close to Manhattan yet I have no desire to go into Times Square for New Year’s. Must be the crowds that keep me away! I’m rambling, on to more important things now.
Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This week our sketch is provided by Teresa Kline…
My card features some more new products from the 2013 Spring Catalog. The base of the card is Summer Starfruit Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Baja Breeze and stamped it with the Netting Background Stamp in Baja Breeze. All of the images on the card are from the By the Tide Stamp Set*. The coral on the circle is stamped in Summer Starfruit and the fish is stamped in Basic Gray. The strip of Basic Gray Card Stock has a piece of Natural 7/16″ Trim Ribbon* that I adhered around the back with some Sticky Strip. The seahorse is stamped in Summer Starfruit and the image next to it is stamped in Baja Breeze and punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch. I used my Paper Snips to cut out the fish and the seahorse. The fish is mounted to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the seahorse and image are adhered to the ribbon with Mini Glue Dots. For the greeting I used a stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched it out with the Word Window Punch. It is mounted to a piece of Basic Gray that is cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This is a great masculine card, especially for the outdoorsy type! If you have a fisherman in your life, well this would be perfect! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. Thanks for visiting and have a awesome day! 🙂

How lovely Justin. Everything matches so well and the colours suit! I like the way you have just stamped the fish in black – he stands out on the “seaweed” background – or maybe it is coral??
Thanks Jean! The fish is growing on me! It’s coral, I really like the set, there is a lobster in it too! Have a good day!
Nice card Justin!!!!!
