In a Fishbowl

Good evening! I have been enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having the past couple of days. It has finally stopped raining and the coolness of fall is in the air. This morning when we left for school it was quite cool and the girls were begging for the heater to be turned on, but by the afternoon it was very pleasant. For my card tonight, I decide to play with some kraft paper. I normally use the same color combinations all the time when I use the kraft paper, usually red or black so I thought I would try something a little different with the blue and white. I started with the fishbowl stamp from Lockhart stamps, colored it with Copic markers and then covered the image with Glossy Accents. The "friendship" stamp is from The Angel Company and was stamped with CTMH Brown Bag ink. The little baubles are from Stamping Bella. I think those little things are great and I stocked up on them that last time I was at Papertrix! After finishing the card and downloading the photo, I decided this particular combination looks like a Breath Saver mint!

I do have to mention that I loved everyone's mention of those ribbon barrettes in the comments on my last post. They really brought back memories! I remember wanting some of those so bad when I was a little girl. There wasn't a lot of money for extras like that, especially when they were so popular. We were at a church craft sale or something that my mom was volunteering at and there was a lady there that made them. She heard me asking for them and my mom's answer and toward the end of the day she asked if I would help her in exchange for some barrettes. I ended up with two sets, one yellow and one kelly green. My hair wasn't even that long, but I loved those things and wore them all the time. Thanks for the reminder!

What a cheery card! I like the way there are three fish together, it goes well with the sentiment of friendship. The glossy effects stuff you've used on the fishbowl really makes it pop out.
