Birthday Best Fishes!

My upline's birthday is approaching I needed to get a card made and sent out to her. I hadn't played around the the Very Puny set much yet, so pulled it off the shelf and started playing around.

I really love the new designer papers in this year's IB&C, and was happy to have a chance to play with the Playhouse papers. I tend to hoard my patterned papers (who doesn't?!) and have to force myself to use them.

This was a VERY simple card. It started with the Certainly Celery base and the Playhouse paper on the lower 2/3rds. I tied on some wide Celery Organdy Ribbon (now retired) and then punched the scalloped circle from Pretty In Pink using my Marvy Uchida punches. I cut a circle of Old Olive using my coluzzle to layer on top of that. Lastly, I stamped the fish, colored it in with Certainly Celery and Tempting Turquoise markers, and punched it with my 1 3/8" SU! circle punch. The scalloped layer is attached with dimensionals, but all else is flat.

Super easy card, made in about 10 minutes or less. Can't beat that!!
