The letters that I had to use were white. They do come in other colors but what I really do like about the white is that I can custom color them. I sprayed these with red Memories Mist spray and I also rubbed them with a Fluid Chalk stamp pad.
The little fish come on this piece of patterned paper. I add in some punched out little fish here and there, mine look more like sharks! For my little square of photos, I created a collage in Picassa. I cropped four photos in a square shape and then picked those four and created a collage. This is sooooo easy in Picassa. I then added the white border around and between the photos. Now I could print this out in the size I wanted. I picked just the right size to fit in the space I had left. This is so much easier then cutting four photos in perfect squares. I did some machine sewing around this square for added interest.
Again, me letters were white. I colored them with spray color and by rubbing them with a Fluid Chalk stamp pad.
How about that punched border? At first I wasn't going to buy this one and now I am very happy that I did. It is by EK Success.
Probably my favorite supply in all that I used is the red and white herringbone sticker letters and the matching patterned paper. I picked the letters to spell "joy" and made my card have a slight Christmas look to it. The label is also a sticker. The star is a die cut that they offer. I rubbed it with a white stamp pad and then embossed that ink with white embossing powder. This gives it a "snow" look.
The card base cardstock is more of the Jillibean Soup Core Impressions Core'dinations cardstock. This piece is WhiteWash. I slightly sanded it to expose the little design.
The flowers are from another piece of Jillibean Soup Core Impressions Core'dinations cardstock. It has embossed flowers all over it and I just cut out three of them. The buttons are actually stickers, they make the cutest flower centers.
