FMS #39, CQC#141 & CFC #57 ~ Wishing You Happiness!

Do you ever have those days that just float by and you wonder where the time has gone? That's been my whole week! I have good intentions of making cards for many challenges, but somehow the day gets away from me before I know it. So for that very reason I combined three challenges into one card. My design is from Freshly Made Sketches, the colors are from the ColourQ and I kept it CAS then added in some acetate for CAS-ual Fridays. Whew...that's a mouthful! But they all worked together!


I die cut two PTI simple circle borders; one in lucky limeade (cut in half) and one in bashful blue. I stamped this stitched circle by Endless Creations, punched it with a circle punch then die cut a circle from the center to create a window for the acetate. Another scalloped circle was punched from a swirly green Fancy Pants paper. My pretty little fish by Stamping Sensations was stamped, colored, fussy cut and popped up with foam tape. I added the acetate/punched circle layer over the fish with two layers of foam dots for lots of dimension. My sentiment is from the PTI: mat stack 4 collection. Some buttons from my stash added in for a punch of pizazz and that's it for me!

Have a delightful day ~Lisa
