You're Golden!

I am always amused by how my creative brain works, and what inspires me to create a particular card.  Today's card is one of those...first I stumbled upon a new-to- me sketch challenge, called Retro Sketches. I liked it right away, and knew it would make for a quick and easy card.  AND DARN IT!!! wouldn't you know, I missed the linky deadline. Oh, well! 

Right away I knew it was a perfect reason to use the pretty Designer Labels 2 Stax Die-namics by MFT.  I also had the pretty MME-Indie Girl papers sitting on my desk, so that lead to my color scheme. 

The only thing left was deciding which stamp set to use.  Last week I took care of my niece's fish. Which led me to the sweet PI-Goldfish Girl.  I had not inked her up yet, so I decided to make a card for my Nieces. I know it's kind of backwards.  I took care of their fish, they should be giving me a card, but receiving a card just because is ALWAYS a good idea. They are 8 and 11, they'll LOVE it!

The rectangle panel was a great spot for my sentiment and it was cut with the RECTANGLE 2 STAX DIE-NAMICS.  I added a little horizontal slot to slide slide my ribbon through (MFT Orange Fizz grosgrain). 

 After I colored the PI, I cut her out and popped her up with some foam dimensionals. I added a bit of shading under her feet to give some extra dimension.
