look at you kid

My entry today follows this week's sketch challenge over at Sketch Saturday.

<<< Here is the sketch.

I had a delve around in what has become my scrap mountain, to make this card. I need to do this more often, rather than reaching for a new sparkly fresh piece of 12 x 12!!

I also haven't done any distressing for a while and was having withdrawal symptoms, so I have done quite a bit on this card.

All patterned papers are from the Fancy Pants ~ Papa collection and these are backed onto Bazzill cardstock.

I cut the little circles with a circle punch and added litte ribbon fishes. My sentiment is a large designer eyelet which reads: Look at You Kid and is by We R Memory Keepers.

The image is Ian from The Greetings Farm. I coloured him with my copics and paper pieced the little fish he's holding.
I added a little plastic skeleton fish from my stash.

Thank you for looking.
