MOJO82 and A Fish Story

This is my submission for Monday's MOJO Sketch - MOJO82. I used a new stamp set that I got from Archiver's and it's from Hero Arts. Isn't it a cute image?

I started with a Tempting Turquoise card base and used Pink Flamingo for my designer paper. The coordinating colors are Real Red, Summer Sun, and Cameo Coral. I stamped the giraffe and the butterfly with Black Brilliance, embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder and colored them with Copic Markers. I stamped the butterfly again and colored it with Copics, cut it out and mounted it with Dimensionals on the main panel. I then pierced the outside edge of the main panel with SU's Mat Pack and a Paper Piercer. The bottom edge of the background designer paper was punched with a Martha Stewart Border Punch. The sentiment (which is hard to see, unfortunately) was stamped with Black Brilliance ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. It is finished off with Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon.

I want to show you another picture. It's of my son Garrett with a fish he caught while on a fishing trip last week with his Dad. He was so proud of himself and so were his Dad and I. He's going to be a great fisherman just like his Dad.

Thanks for coming by to check me out today. I hope you have a wonderful week. Talk to you soon.

Such a bright beautiful card Pam! I'm loving it! I'm a sucker for giraffes anyway. I really like that MS punch too. Don't think I've seen that yet. Between punches and embossing folders, I'm filling up my craft room:))

Great picture of your son with his prize fish! Daddy must be so proud!
