Thursday Spark Challenge 1/27

Happy Thursday

I am playing along with the Sparks Challenge this week.  This week there is really  fun sketch for inspiration. 
I followed the sketch to the letter with this one.  I loved the large circle.  

Jack has a birthday party this weekend so I knew I wanted to a birthday card and Jack said he wanted me to make a funny one.  Soooo I broke out my stamps and we looked them over and he liked the birthday fishes.  So now all I had to do was pick the paper for this little guppy!  I have a whole bag filled with scraps from a really old summer collection from Echo Park.  I think it is almost 3-4 years old now but I loved this collection and I saved all the scraps.  This is what I came up with.
I liked it and Jack thought it was awesome so he is already to go!  Just have to include the gift card and we are done!  I love it when we work together and this challenge worked out great!

supplies
cardstock- neenah solar white
paper- echo park
stamps- paper smooches -- Birthday Buddies ( i think this is one of my all time faves!!)
ink- memento, jenni bowlin
markers- spectrum noir
pearls- recollections

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new winter layout using some yummy Core'dinations.  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
