Best Fishes -- for DigiStamps4Joy

Looking for the Pinque Peacock May Flowers blog hop?  Please click HERE!
Looking for the Sunday Sketch & Stamp post?  Please click HERE:
It's Sunday, which means there's new releases at DigiStamps4Joy.  Every Sunday, there's new goodness to play with in the DS4J store -- how fun is THAT?
Here's what I made with one of this week's new releases:

I colored this school of fish with Copic markers.  I wanted them to be bright and fun.  Then, I found some bright paper to match -- it happens to be My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Citron".  I also used some American Crafts glitter paper on this card.  Spellbinders dies were used to cut the shapes, and 3 Girl JAM  Harvest Orange ribbon from the Harvest Bundle finishes the card.
Here's the digi stamp I used from DigiStamps4Joy new release:
The digi is appropriately titled:  "School's Out"
Make sure you visit the DS4J blog to see the other new releases and the great projects the other design team members created with them.  You're sure to be inspired!

  12. SQUEEEEEE….this is so cute, Julie! Oh my, I seriously love this. We used to call our middle son Joefish all the time because his older brother couldn't say Joseph and it came out as Joefish, then it progressed to just "Fish" ha…enough of my story, but you can see why this card made me squeal. Adorable my friend.
