This week, my friend and mentor, Mary Fish, designed the fabulous Mojo Monday sketch and I absolutely love it! It's definitely a go-to sketch for the sketchbook, and I thought I would make a fun, sweet card as my take on it.
For this card, I first punched out the squares in blue, then the slightly larger square in red to frame them. Next, I stamped just the tail portion of this adorable fish stamp on three of the squares, leaving the fourth for the sentiment. Cute, yes? Then, I stamped the waves across a blue panel, trimmed some bright red card stock, and added the whole fishy in the corner. I finished off with some white brads, red bow, and a white button, keeping things clean and simple.
