Hugs & Fishes

CASologySo…what do you do when you REALLY want to join in a challenge but the theme is FISHES and you have NOTHING to use?  Well…you make it a MDS (My Digital Studio) Hybrid of course!

I soooo wanted to do the CASology challenge this week but I don’t have a single fish so I thought I’d see what I had in MDS…sure enough…a cut little fish!  Then I saw the hugs and kisses stamp and what can I say…the rest is history as the saying goes.

So the base of the card is Whisper White and I pierced a circle in there.  The hugs and kisses image was from the All Holidays Digital set and I colored it Basic Grey.  The fish was from the Digital On the Go set.  I resized and colored in Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana.  I printed the images out, punched out the greeting using the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and mounted using dimensionals.  The fish were added then a did a couple of Basic Rhinestones for ‘bubbles’.  So..MDS to the RESCUE!!!  And now I have a little fishy card!

This is my second post for today so make sure you check out my fun (and CAS) card here.  We are having such fun during Preview Week at Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013 this week and don’t want you to miss anything! So check it out!
