A Challenge and A Search

Hi everyone.

Heres hoping you have all had a good start to your week.


I am loving CAS-ual Fridays and their 2nd challenge is to use buttons and twine on your project. I decided to team it up with Paper Smooches Guest Designer search. Kim makes the cutest images and when I saw the new digi stamp I couldn't resist joining in.

When I first saw this guy I immediately thought 'fish', (despite the very obvious stripes), so I went with it :)


The wagon is a sizzix die which I embossed and then added metal button wheels and plaited twine to pull it along. The fish bowl was also a digital image that I found, coloured with distress inks and then added a thin layer of glossy accents. The sentiment is computer generated also, (sticking to a theme here!)

It doesn't look it in the photo, but this card is actually square - 5" x 5" (sorry for the bad picture).

Have a great day.
