Garden's Fair ...

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Sensitive Plant"

The one that got away? ...

Fishing is the sport of drowning worms.  ~Author Unknown

Good morning Everyone!
Today is the start of a new color challenge for The Outlawz Challenges.
Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps

Our Inspiration
This week our challenge to use at least 3 colors from the Olympic Flag with a sports twist of we want to use it.

Fishing is considered a sport by some ... personally, I think for most of those who partake it's an excuse to hang out on a boat or lake shore and forget the world around them.
The border punch I used create a flower but when using just one side, it made me think of splashing water. The fish is fussy cut and attached with a foam dot.

This card is 5.50 x 4.25

Card stock: The Paper Studio & Stampin Up!
Punch: Border punch from EK Success
EF: "Tide" from Lifestyle Crafts
Inks/Pens: Copics
Stamps: "Fishin" & "Best Dad Ever" from Stampin Up!, Trout image unknown
Stash: Homemade enamel dots

Thanks for stopping by!
