I didn't read the not so fine print on the Retro Rubber Challenge and found my submission is not acceptable because it was a real baby instead of animal.

So I am trying again...

The base card is grey textured card stock with a layer of white linen card stock.
Onto the white I layered a piece of marbled paper from my stash.
The banner piece is grey textured card stock.
On another piece of white linen card stock I stamped the Daddy and baby fish from Stampin Up's "fishy friends" (2006) using Adirondack slate ink.
I colored them with Prisma color pencils and die cut them with a circle from my circle die set.
To sparkle them up a bit I used Wink of Stella Gloss Clear pen.
After attaching the fish to the card front I applied blue sequins and applied glitter glue to the centers of each.


  1. Thank you for whipping up this new card for the RRCB! I happen to like this one even better! I feel like I have been transported to Finding Dory! Beautiful colors and great combo of challenges! Love it! Thanks for playing along with Retro Rubber!! (PS I have deleted your other card from our gallery. I didn't want to do so until I knew you had seen my comment).

    1. Thanks for the heads up ! I'll change my blog to reflect that!

  2. Beautiful shades of blue.

  3. Oh, I'm so happy you gave our "Baby,Baby" challenge another try with this beautiful card. 2006 is way before I started stamping so I went to Splitcoaststampers which is a great place to find out the age of your Stampin' Up! stamp sets, and saw the rest of this adorable images.
    Love how you combined the challenges to create this beautiful card.
    Thank you for sharing it at RETRO RUBBER, hope to see you back in the gallery again soon.
