Best Fishes

This week for the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge, the inspiration is all things ocean.


They are also encouraging Clean and Simple designs, and that is definitely what I've done: 


Why I couldn't be happy with saying "birthday fishes" I don't know, but I decided to use the word "best" from Woofers and Tweeters with the "fishes" instead. I tried the fish in a Polaroid frame, but decided a faux porthole made so much more sense. :P The eye is glossy and the hat Stickled, of course. 
Best fishes to you! Have a great weekend.

Supplies: white & Stampin' Up real red cardstock, My Mind's Eye Six by Six Away We Go patterned paper, Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies & Woofers and Tweeters stamps, Versafine onyx black ink, Sharpies, Spellbinders circle dies, clear rock candy Distress Stickles, Glossy Accents, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!
