Hello and welcome.  This card is for the new challenge up on SUNDAY STAMPS .
It's a fun sketch by Lisa. I swapped the rectangle out for a circle, I liked it better with the curve of the koi fish.  Below is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I won this great stamp set at a stamping event. It's a little different style for me but I love the look and fun way to use the floral as a border. It's called Koi Dreams by Fun Stampers Journey. 

I choose Flirty Flamingo,  Peekaboo Peach,  & Emerald Envy.  I liked the brighter colors for the overall feel.

Head on over to the other DESIGN TEAM ladies and see what they've created.  Hope it inspires you to join us in this sketch challenge. See you in the gallery...

Hello and welcome! This posting is for FMS challenge #354. This is a very interesting sketch!  I really struggled with what I was going to make. I think, I was over thinking it...

So, here is the sketch:

So after all that thinking, lol, I kept it REALLY simple. But, I think it works  :)

Sometimes simple is best...

Happy Fall and Pumpkin Spice season ;)
