Birthday Fishes

Hello everyone,

Tell me, what do you do when you're stuck with a challenge, for me, the answer is to "think outside the box".

My dilemma is with this week's CASology challenge Week #6 - the cue card being SCHOOL.  I have no stamps which fit with this educational establishment, so (I think I may really be chancing my luck here and may well be disqualified!?) but I've gone for "a school of fish" ...



Stamp is Inkadinkado, stamped in Sky Blue, Copper & Ivy Brilliance Inks. A touch of Broken China DI. Sentiment is computer generated.  There is a bit of reflection in the photo - that is caused by the SUN, which is making a welcome appearance today.

This card also fits two other challenges, so I'm trying my luck there too ...

CAS-ual Fridays CFC65 - Square Card, and
Addicted to Stamps Theme Challenge #2- Cards for Boys

Thanks for taking the time to visit.  Schools here go back next Tuesday so I should have a bit more blogging time when we return to a normal routine.  Goodness knows how we're going to get up and out of the house for 8.15!

See you soon.

Suze xx

Another stunner! I love the way you've chosen different colours for the fish and how kind of the light to catch on your copper tones!
