Have Fun at the lake

Hello! For my card today I used the Camping Critters cartridge to make my card base and for my little fishy. To give my fishy texture I used the Extra Small Polka Dot set from PeachyKeenStamps.com.  I used Emma's stamp set called Have Fun in the Sun to make my own patterned paper and for my sentiment. I stamped the words randomly and used my Tim Holtz distress inks in the colors broken china and shabby shutters. I ♥ these colors together! I then misted lightly with water in a mini mister while the ink was still wet to get a more watery effect. And to finish it off I sprayed a little bit of perfect pearls in a mini mister to give it a little sparkle.

♥ Nikki ♥

P.S. Who else is super bummed that Casey Anthony didn't testify??? BOO!
