Swimming Faith

The moment I saw this pretty fish cut on the Seasonal Limited edition Luau cartridge from Scrapbook Pal I knew I wanted to make this card. For those of you that know, today my husband and are in the air somewhere on our way to Ethiopia to meet our baby boy and are one step closer to having him home. It has sure taken a lot faith and perserverance to get this far! Here's how I made my card.

Using the Luau cartridge cut the fish at 1 1/2" 8 times, once with the FLIP feature on. Since I wanted my one fish to stand out I also cut him out of colored patterned paper and used the layer feature as well. For the blue fish I dry embossed them with Swiss Dots and swiped them with white ink. For my sentiment I used the Pink by Design set, Faith and used a black Tombow marker to color only the words I wanted to get the sentiment to line up the way I wanted without having to do any masking. Whatever you are going through, keep swimming and keep the faith!
