PP687 Birthday Fishes

Happy Sunday, peeps!  Joanne has a fun sketch for us all at the Paper Players! I hope you'll play along! Check it out:

So many possibilities!  I am always in need of masculine cards, so I thought I'd used the Gone Fishing bundle along with the Let's Go Fishing DSP! Here we go:

I used some of the watery-looking papers for the squares, then diecut and stamped the fish, lure and float in some fun colors! They all went on a Unbounded Love die:

I added a wee bit of Boho Blue twine, tied in a square knot, and a little birthday sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  The Bojo Blue mat was partially diecut with another die from the set to follow along with the watery theme!  A sentiment from Unbounded Love went on the inside; wouldn't it be fun if it said "May All your FISHES Come True"?  

Be sure to hurry over to the Paper Players and see what the other designers created! I hope that will give you some inspiration to play with Joanne's sketch as well!  Thanks so much for stopping by today! 

Cassidy went to a basketball camp at St Mary's College on Maryland's Eastern Shore.  I'll find out today how she made out!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, we're so ready for fishing! This is such a fun sketch from Joanne - you've gathered just the right fishing lures for any guy! I love those little waves you've created in the background - just big enough to make that bobber dance a little!

oops... I know much more about fishing than basketball, but that looks like a 3-pointer to me, Cass!

My hubby would love this card, LeAnne! It's perfect for the challenge this week and i'm sure it's the perfect card for the fisherman in your life! Miss Cassidy is getting so grown up! Hope she had a great time at basketball camp! :)

I love this LeAnne - your fishy ephemera looks great against those wavy squares. The subtle background texture adds a nice additional detail too. A fab take on my sketch!

What a fabulous masculine card, LeAnne! The fish, the lure and the bobbin are perfect against the Unbounded die cut. I LOVE the sentiment!

LeAnne, I just love this fun, masculine card. All the fishing lure is perfect to catch the big fish. Great texture, too! Love it!

What a fun card, LeAnne! This reminds me of summers at our lake house growing up. Fantastic!
