The sentiment is from a site named Useless Trinkets that offers dozens of free images and sentiments. I ended up retyping it to fit it onto the card, but you can find the original HERE. The pup I trimmed to the group was added to the inside. Doesn't he look adorable peeking around the sentiment?Entered into:

My next is my DT creations for this week's Colour Crazy Challenge. The sponsor is Tiddly Ink and this wonderful image is named "Ricky Fishing Expert." I colored Ricky and his whopping catch with Spectrum Noir markers and a white gel pen. The "net" is made with some mesh fabric that I cut from the inside pocket of an old travel bag and the oval behind Ricky is cut from a blue plastic document folder, that comes in a pack of assorted colors and can be found in the office supply section of most stores. I really like using them on my cards because they're often cheaper than colored vellum and are more translucent. You can write on them with a fine-line permanent marker and they're also easy to fussy-cut with a nice, sharp pair of scissors. The inside sentiment is a freebie from Birdscards that you can find HERE. I added a strip of the mesh and a small photo from my scrapbook stash to add a bit more pizazz to the inside of the card.

My final card for this post is an Asian inspired bookmark tag, safely nestled in a vellum envelope with a peek-a-boo window. I used scrapbook paper as the background on the card and on the tag. The Love symbol block is a rubber stamp that I pulled from the wood mount years ago. I think it might be a Hero Arts or Embossing Arts stamp. I covered the tag elements with a strip of clear laminate to make it more durable. After adding the laminate, I punched the top of the tag and threaded a strip of red cording through it and attached a porcelain bead from some of my mom's old jewelry. I know that my sister, who will be receiving this bookmark will love that! I plan to make a small box envelope that will protect the bead when I mail the card to her in a padded envelope.
