Fab Fri 45 and PPA 210

I'm still working on Thank You cards for the Idaho trip.  Today I'm combining the sketch challenge from Fab Fri 45 and the color challenge from Paper Pal Arts 210.

PPA210 Basic Gray Lost Lagoon Pool Party

I needed to make my card mailable; so no major embellishments.  Here's my version:

Stamp Sets: By the Tide and Lots of Thanks
Cardstock: Basic Grey, Pool Party, and Moonlight designer series paper stack
Ink: Basic Grey
Accessories: 2-1/2" circle punch, 1/4" Pool Party (Sycamore Street) ribbon, paper snips, dimensionals

I really liked the wavy pattern of the Lost Lagoon color in the Moonlight paper pack.  When I saw it, I knew I had to make a swimming fish card.  The ribbon I used is from last year's Sell-A-Bration freebie: Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack.  Yes, I hoard everything and then I scramble to use them later.  I couldn't find my Pool Party seam binding which is what I wanted to used on this card.


  1. The Pool Party embossed fish is great and used with the wavy Lost Lagoon makes him look like he is swimming along. Fun! Thanks for playing with the Pals this week.

  2. Yes, it does look like water, great idea! Thanks for having fun with the Pals this week!

  3. Karen, That fish! What a great color combination for that guy! Beautiful! And what a great combination of the two challenges! Thanks for playing along with the FabFriday sketch and the PPA color challenge.

  4. A fish in the waves! I love it. Thanks for playing at PPA. Come back soon!
