Freshly Made Sketches: Birthday Fishes

This is my second post today. 
Scroll down for the Color Throwdown.

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by our fabulous guest designer Shannon Jaramillo.


Today is my husband's birthday!!  The poor guy has tried so hard this last month to get some fishing in it but it never quite works out - something always gets in the way.  So I decided to give him a birthday "fish"!!

FMS Birthday Fishes


I started out with the intent of using the Roly Poly - Fish die exactly as it was but adding a few trees to give it an outdoor look.  No matter what I did, it looked like a fishbowl.  So I cut the water but moved it down and re-cut a circle. Then I had space to add mountains, trees and a rising/setting sun. With everything getting in my husband's way, this may be the only mountain stream and fish he sees this year!

Be sure to check out the inspiration from the other designers including two amazing guests.  Then I hope to see you playing along this week!

Happy birthday to your DH! Hopefully, he'll get some time on the streams and lakes. This sweet card should tide him over until he does! The glitter fish is amazing; I can just picture fish scales glistening in the sunlight. What a fantastic card. He'll just love it. Bev

This has got to be the greatest fish scene I've ever seen! I'm sure that sunrise over the mountains and a sparkly fish are all your husband needs!
