Simon Says Paper Piece

Can you believe after being absent for so long, I have been able to do 3 challenges this week. Believe me, I need all the relaxing I can get lately and boy does stamping help me relax.

This card was done for the Simon Says Challenge which is to paper piece. I used the same background paper for the glasses and inner tube of the shark, and then stamped it again on real red cutting out the polka dots and then paper pieced those onto the inner tube trying to pick up the red of the background of the fish bowl. It is also one of the few times I have combined my cricut and stamping onto a card. I also stippled the inside of the Fish Bowl to create some sand and water.

This adorable shark is from Whippersnapper Designs and I couldn't wait to ink him up. This card is intended for my son who will turn 19 on Tuesday. Do I really have a son who will be 19. Not sure if I will use it, or give it to my younger son to give him, but he doesn't feel his big brother deserves it.

Stamp: Whippersnapper - Shark, SU-Circle of Friends
Paper: Designer Paper from Anna Griffin Alix Collection, SU papers include Real Red Brillant Blue, and white
Ink: Momento Black Ink, SU-Brillant Blue, Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Creamy Carmel
Extras: Cricut-Animal Cartridge Fish Bowl cut at 3 1/2", Fish Brads,1" Circle Punch, Jolee's Crab sticker..

Thanks for looking and hope you like it..
