Birthday Fishes!

Hi There! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!
 
I wanted to share a card that I created for the Pumpkin Spice Challenge. This week's challenge is Blue, White, and something Round.
 
For my card I wanted to use my new Paper Smooches stamps that I received from Shop Pumpkin Spice. This was the first time ever using Paper Smooches and I have to say, I LOVE THEM!
 
The set I am using is called "Birthday Buddies."
 
 
I started with a kraft card base then layered another kraft layer. I inked both layers with Ranger Distress Ink in Tea Dye.
 
I cut circles in several different sizes and embossed my white circle with the Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder.

 
My center circle was layered on a rosette the I created with the Tim Holtz Sizzix Sizzlits Die - Paper Rosettes. This is about $6.00 cheaper at Shop Pumpkin Spice compared to my local craft stores!
 
I stamped my fish on some patterned paper from Echo Park and added a googly eye. I stamped the bubbles that come with the PS set and then added gems.
 
My sentiment is also from the same Paper Smooches set. You can see all the Paper Smooches Stamps that are available at Shop Pumpkin Spice HERE.
 
I used a sketch from Deconstructing Jen.
 
 
Come check out the challenge on the Pumpkin Spice Blog. There is a brand new challenge every Saturday and runs from Saturday to the following Friday. We would love for you to join us!
 
I am adding this card to the following challenges:
 
Pumpkin Spice ~ Blue, White, Something Round
Deconstructed ~ Sketch #86
My Craft Spot ~ Wish Big
Party Time Tuesday ~ #105 Anything Goes
