Birthday Fishes


The Opposite Attract Challenge at CAS-ual Fridays this week involves using opposing colours from the colour wheel.  I went for the blue/orange combo and used these cute Paper Smooches fishies and created waves using a scallop die.  


Have you seen the list of new design team members at CAS-ual Fridays?  I was excited to see that they're all bloggers whose work I follow but I was SUPER EXCITED to see my friends Lynn and Jenny on the list.  Whoop whoop, ladies!  Can't wait to see your first projects!  :)  


Cardstock:  (White, Blue, Oranges) Bazzill
Stamps:  (Fish & sentiment from Birthday Buddies) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Pumpkin Pie) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Medium scallop die) PTI

Orange & blue is Connor's favourite colour combo of all time - he's always saying something needs to be 'blue, with extra orange.' LOL! Love these fishes - pretty sure this is going to be my next set :)
