Paper Sundaes - Keep It Simple


I am so excited to be playing with my girls this week at Paper Sundae's.  

The challenge this week is 
~ Keep it Simple ~
and is being sponsored by My Favorite Things.

I was getting ready to make my DT card when I saw this week sketch at MFT and thought it was went perfectly with this week's simple theme.  My image is a la modes, Something's Fishy and I've kept things fairly simple with embossed cardstock and only 1 small piece of Basic Grey, Origins DP.  I've paper pieced the fish and drew a frame around the image as I've seen Jodi Collins do and couldn't wait to try for myself.  The ribbon I've had in my stash forever but could never seem to find the right project to use it.  Super excited to see it finally used!!   The sentiment is a digi from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps with a little Stickles along the edge for a little sparkle and fun.

Challenges:
My Favorite Things = #10 Sketch
One Stop Craft = #122 Clean & Simple
Crafty Catz = #73 Yellow & Green
Raise The Bar = 57 G.R.E.E.N. 
(Girl, Rhinestones, Embossing, Embellishment, Nestie)
Stamping with the Dragon = St Patrick'd Day (Color combo)
Meljen's = #49 Green
Paper Play = #10 Shades of Green/Good Luck
Creative Card Crew = No Flowers
Simon Says Stamp = Anything Goes

By the way ~ I had a wonderful time last week at Suzanne Dean Copic class.  The highlight was meeting my friend Tracy in person and spending the day with her.  We have so much in common it's almost freaky!!  It's so nice when you meet someone and you just "click".   She and I were cutting up and laughing the whole time that we were for sure the "bad table"!!  LOL  I hope Suzanne didn't find us to be too obnoxious!!   Hopefully Tracy and I can hang out together again real soon.  I wish I had a photo to share with you, but in my excitement I forgot my camera.  :(


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Wendy
