By the Tide Father's Day Card

Oh my, am I ever horrible at taking photos!  I got the majority of the card in.  I need some practice!!!  

Ok, lets move on to this fun Father's Day card.  I found this card made by Nancy at Canopy Crafts. I did change it a lot.  What attracted me about her card was the circle and how the fish were in placement behind and in front of the circle.  I also liked the Off the Grid image along with the Gorgeous Grunge dots.  

Nancy's card is very fun and pleasing to the eye.  I would liked to have copied it but I didn't have the background paper she used so I went with what I had and that resulted in me changing the colors.  I like both cards.  They are unique in their own way.  

I am happy with the colors here and how the card turned out.  I do not like cutting out things by hand (the fish here) so I can say that I don't see myself making too many cards like this in the near future!!! Give me a stamp set with a matching punch and I'm extremely happy!!!

The words on my card are from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  I used Gumball Green for the fish and the label.  Whisper White card stock for the focal piece and the base of the card is Smoky Slate.  I used Early Espresso to stamp the fish.  The decorative paper is from the Watercolor Wonder decorative paper pack.  For the dots I used Pacific Point and I did stamp off once.  The circle measures 2".  And finally, Off the Grid was stamped using Smoky Slate.  The card really wasn't that difficult to do but like I said, I don't like cutting out things by hand.   

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
