Meet my Fishy Friends

It's been a while since I played with this cute stamp set, and once I did one card last night I couldn't stop and ended up making a set of three :) I also managed to incorporate two sketch challenges. And although I have never used these colours together before but I just love them! I should also add, that these images have a LOT of glitter on or around them so are very sparkly IRL. It was hard to capture that in the photos though.

This first card uses the Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge FTL98 over at Clean & Simple Stamping.
The second card was done for this week's Inkspirations Sketch #31 over at Keesh's blog.
And this last one was actually the first card I did, and doesn't use any challenges at all :)
Supplies:
Stamps: Fishy Friends (retired), Fishy wheel, share a cup sentiment, teeny tiny sentiments and best yet.
Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Green Galore, Gable Green, Whisper White
Ink: basic black, gable green
Other: Stitching, stampin' dimensionals, dazzling diamonds (lots of it!) various border punches and embossing folders, bermuda bay ribbon, circle punches.

These are absolutely gorgeous! My friend has that stamp set and I often borrow it off her. I love the embossed circle backgrounds they really compliment these stamps and the colours are just divine and work well together! Very inspirational.

Totally adorable, my friend - you have such a knack with colours, and colouring! My stand-out favourite is the starfish card, but I love them all, with the varying 'dotty' embossing and stitching, and sparkle. Just beautiful, and a very deserving winner of Keesh's challenge!!
