Super Sketchy Sunday Challenge + PIO #14

Yay! Super Sketchy Sunday at 365 Cards. I love Pam's sketches - they're always challenging and fun to work with. I'm also going to enter this card into Pile It On's challenge #14 for the week - Birthday.

I must admit that this sketch had me baffled at first, so I printed it and flipped it (I have a hard time visualizing it with my head tilted to the computer screen). For me, I thought it was fun flipped sideways - but I still wasn't sure what I was going to do until I dug through to my stash to see what I had... Paper is what usually inspires me.

I thought these little Doodlebug fishies were perfect. I bought the matching glitter card stickers - and now I'm really glad I did. I popped the stickers for added dimension and fun.

This one's too special to sell. It's going to be saved for my great-nephew...

Well, I'm off. Mom and Dad are coming over later, and I'm going to put on a pot of soup.

Cardstock - generic construction paper from da stash; Design Paper - Doodlebug Designs "Deep Blue Sea"; Glitter Stickers - Doodlebug Designs "Seaside"; Stamp - CTMH; Ink - Opalite Nordic Ice & VersaFine Majestic Blue; Ribbon - da stash.

I hope y'all have a GREAT day!!
