One of my fondest memories of a summer vacation was when I was a child going to the lake with my family and fishing.  So when I saw this digi stamp (Sunbonnet Fish2) from Bugaboo Stamps, I knew it would be the perfect stamp for this challenge . . . plus would make a perfect card for my dad who is an avid fisherman. :)  Here's how it turned out:

"Surf's Up" paper collection from Close To My Heart
"Chocolate" Liquid Pearls (for worm)
rub-on from Making Memories
Shimmering Rain sprays

Since I didn't want to try coloring my "sky", I mixed Ice and Turquoise Shimmering Rain sprays to come up with a VERY light blue . . . I then masked off my image and lightly sprayed the background.  It is hard to see in this picture, but believe me it is there.  And to give the worm a bit more dimension, I used Chocolate Liquid Pearls.

Since I am still trying to find my "style", I had decided to try to do more of a CAS (clean and simple) card this time.  I think I did a pretty good job of it.  What do you think?

Till the next time I'm up in the night. Kathy
