Birthday Fishes Tag

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Hi Friends! Hope you're having a great weekend! I'll be taking a little break during the summer from the Tuesday Morning Sketches DT, in order to spend more time with my DD, but I'll still be posting cards occasionally.

Today, I've got a birthday tag for a boy. Going with a fish and water theme, all the layers have circles, bubbles, or dots on them--including the fish!

I used this week's Viva la Verve sketch, rotated 90 degrees.

And, my color palette came from this week's Color Throwdown palette--perfect for a fishy tag.

Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Picture Perfect looks like it has water in the background, and I trimmed my ribbons to look like the little flags in the cupcakes. 
Here are closeups of the ribbons and glittery fish:

Thank you for all your sweet comments on my blog recently. If I haven't commented on your blog in the past couple of weeks, I'll be by very soon. My daughter and I have had a couple of weeks of visiting family and friends, so my computer time has been very limited. But, I'm home for awhile now, and can get caught up. :)
