Cool Days!

Good Morning, Monday!

Hope everyone in the U.S. had a safe and happy 4th holiday weekend!

Today, it's time for 

This week is an
Inspiration challenge!

Here is your inspiration: 

Make sure you stop by The Pink Elephant Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the Design Team's inspirational projects.  Then, create a paper project inspired by this week's photo and link it up to share with us.  

We love when you play along!

Here is my card I created from the photo:


STAMPS: Fish & bubbles - Sea Critters (Recollections); Tiny heart - Flopsey Bunches of Hearts (My Favorite Things); Sun (Jenni Bowlin); Sentiment-Little Bits of Summer (Taylored Expressions).
PAPER: White cardbase; Red cardstock; DP - Summer Bliss (Echo Park); Chevron DP - Recollections; Clear plastic;
INK: Copics on image; Brillance Sunflower (Memento); Black Tuxedo (Memento).
EXTRAS: Large bubble emboss folder (Cuttlebug); Banner die (Reverse Confetti); various sequins; red baker's twine; blue button.

When I started thinking about my card for this week's inspirational challenge, first popsicles came to mind but I wanted to stretch my creative mind a bit.  Then, sunshine and fish came to mind.  Then, I wanted to do something not so typical, so I thought a shaker on a tag kind of like a fish bowl effect. I stamped the fish and bubbles on white cardstock and colored with Copics.  You can't really see, but a couple of the bubbles are hearts.  The tag I drew out using the tag die from Reverse Confetti, just outlining it on cardstock and elongating it a bit. For a little extra texture, I partially embossed the bottom right corner of the card.  I love how the card turned out!
