Card Harmony -- Fintastic Friends

Happy happy Monday!!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

Today Kimberly and I are back with another Card Harmony post.
Here is a link to my blog post last month that tells a little bit about what Card Harmony is all about. 
We basically take turns purchasing stamps each month and then we both make a card using the same stamp set to see how alike or different our cards turn out. We add a little twist each month though to make it a little more challenging. 

This month we are using the stamp set Fintastic Friends from Lawn Fawn, with the added twist of incorporating embossing (dry or wet) onto our project. 

Here is the card that I created:

For my card,  I wanted some bright colors so I used some patterned paper from the Take Note paper pad from Doodlebug and added a fun little border along the bottom of my card with a border punch and white card stock. I didn't have any orange twine, so I took some Totally White Trendy Twine and used the same orange Copic that I used for my fish to color the twine. I love how it matched perfectly! I added a white strip that I embossed using my swiss dots embossing folder and added that to the center of my card. I stamped my little scene onto some Neenah card stock and then colored the image with my Copics. I used a circle die from My Creative Time to cut out my image layer as well as a frame to go around it. I finished off my card by adding some small paper circles and adding glossy accents to them to give them the appearance of being enamel dots. For my greeting, I used some VersaMark ink and Hero Arts white embossing powder. I am so happy with the way my card turned out! I hope Kimberly likes it :) 

I am entering this card into the Lawnscaping Challenge: Embossing
