You Make Me Smile

Happy Hump Day OCS Fans! 

For my post today I used "Fish Kiss" and the "You Make Me Smile" sentiment from the new Woodland Friends release at High Hopes Stamps.

My card layout is based on the sketch from the November OCS challenge. I love sketches - they can be used over and over again when you're in a pinch or even when you're not <smile>

I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and then cutting it out with a classic circle die. I added some freckles to the bears face with a brown marker and a cheek and freckles to the fish with a white gel pen and alcohol marker just for fun.

Then I layed out my card base using cardstock and patterned paper from Echo Park and Lawn Fawn. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out in a matching circle shape. Some photo corners, ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card.
