Hugs & fishes!

Hi there!

This little fishy stamp I received as a freebie in a card making magazine some time ago, came in very handy for this week's challenge at Casology  --- FISH!

I added a few sequins, which gives a little bling, making it possible to enter the The paper players CAS bling challenge.

I made the background using the "faux embossing" technique and colored the image with my promarkers.

Never thought I would love a fishy card as much as I love this one!






Thanks for looking!
Have a great day!

Talk about setting the mood with a card....from the beautiful faux embossed heart background to the two lovey-dovey-smoochy fish and the sweet hearts & bling bubbles...love is definitely in the air...or water!

Beautiful colors!

Your background is so sweet! It is better than embossing because the edges are so crisp! This is a fun card! So glad you joined in on the fun at CASology this week!
