A Fin-tastic Day

Well, summer is just rolling right along here in Lilesland.  Lindsie has one choir camp behind her, and she's been helping her boyfriend with one of  his EMT training assignments.  We had our vitals taken from him yesterday and yep, I'm alive!  I guess that means we will be good to go on our annual trek to Possum Kingdom Lake to watch the fireworks this Saturday.  We look forward to it every year!

Since we've been doing a little relaxing along with the fun activities, I was in the mood to color some images from REVERSE CONFETTI with my Copic markers for this card that I'm also entering into the SIMON SAYS STAMP Wednesday Challenge--Anything Goes!
I used the MERMAID KISSES stamp set for all the images and sentiment and then cut them out with the coordinating MERMAID KISSES Confetti Cuts.  

I've been seeing some fantastic (fin-tastic?) cards lately with just a bit of patterned paper along the sides with the images sort of "floating" in the middle of a white background, so I thought I'd use that as my inspiration here.  The patterned paper is from the latest 6x6 paper pad, PATTERN PLAY.  My mermaid is playing in the DOIN' THE WAVE Confetti Cuts "water" and the sides are trimmed in some scallops from the EDGE ESSENTIALS Confetti Cuts.  A few swarovski crystals here and there and some fun solid CARIBBEAN twine across the top--it came together "swimmingly"!  Here's what I used:
