Just keep Swimming!!

Good Morning my friends, Today we have a brand new sketch for you, so head on over to Delightful Sketches for details. I used the Fish and Sentiment digi for my card and everytime i look at this little cutie i end up with that little song from Nemo in my head, you know the one. so of coarse i couldn't just make a regular card with her, instead i made a swinger card. The swinger mechanism makes my little fishy bob up and down when you shake the card side to side. isn't that the coolest!!! Now your probably wondering where the sentiment is, well i needed to hide the swinger mechanism so i printed it out a pretty good size and used it inside my card to cover the swinger. I matted everything and then used some real thick pop dots on all four corners so that the swinger had room to swing. I used circles for the area used to write your personal comment to mimic the bubbles, i even added some flat back pearls. If you would like to give the Swinger Card a try you can find the tutorial here.

Now remember you don't have to use Digital Delights images to participate, although we love when you do, as long as you follow the sketch and have fun, we just want to see your fabulous creations. We also have an Awesome sponsor this week. The prize is $20.00 from (click on logo to visit)
Well that's it for me, i hope to see some of your Delightful Sketch cards. this sketch will run from 10/15-10/28. I would love for you to play along. Have a Wonderful Day!!!
