Featured Stamper: Toni Storie

Sometimes the weather interferes with my card making; today it was a tornado warning that temporarily halted my CASEing of today’s Featured Stamper’s Happy Goldfish card (I was sitting in the basement for a while, listening to the radio). Perhaps that’s why I ended up making more changes in my design than I was planning to.

I decided to use light aqua card stock instead of white for the base of my card, but I kept the colors similar to ravengirl‘s original. Her scalloped trim embellishment inspired me to use the big scallop border punch along the bottom edge of the card. I layered my ribbon and added my sentiment on a round tag, since there was no room for it on the image panel.

Gina K.’s Happy Fish Card- featuring Copic Markers StampTV episode also inspired me, so I decided to add this card to her Design Team Blog Hop as well.

Thanks for stopping by!
