Today the Teapotters are making cards for Sweet Emily, a 6th grader who is going through a rough time. Among the things mentioned that she likes, were Nemo, blues and purples so I made her a bit of a fantasy underwater scene. Do you know if you are looking in or out?? Can you find Namo? Hee!
Emily is a Christian who loves scripture and she has great faith in God. She is very positive and hopeful. To boost that hope, I stamped "A cheerful heart is good medicine" on the inside. She and her family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Thanks for looking!
TIP: The "school" of fish at the bottom is actually a Paper Smooches floral border stamp. I added lines/stripe, dots to their tails and dotted their eyes. Pun intended. Hee!

So cute! How creative to look at that floral strip and see fish! I also like how how you blended the bg - the top pattern (my mind will not come up with a name LOL!!!) just eases into the plainer bottom. Hope you can figure out what I mean 'cause I am having a hard time saying it!!!

What a sweet card, Gabby! It reminds me of my one and only visit to an aquarium. I was wondering what you'd used for the little fishy border along the bottom. Flowers!! That's so clever and imaginative. Blues and purples are colours I associate with you, and I'm sure Emily will love the added sequins.
