Best Fishes for Kaboodles

This week the Kaboodle Blog has a cute challenge to use buttons and ribbon on your card. So here is my entry:


This was great fun to design! I started with the fish and had the idea to use the buttons as the bubbles. I brayered the background after embossing the seaweed toward the bottom of the card. I laid out the fish and buttons and then decided where to put the ribbon and the sentiment. The stamp set used is called Best Fishes by Gina K Designs. The card base is black card stock. Thanks to Kaboodles for this challenge. I probably never would have attempted this card if it hadn't been a challenge.
Happy Tuesday to you all. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your week is going well.

Happy inking,

Love it Donna. This is so cute. I wouldn't have thought of using the buttons that way, but what a great idea!
