Simply Sunday at Getting Cricky

The Simply Sunday challenge this week was a summer themed project. I'm not overly thrilled with my card, but really wanted to use my new Disney Pixar cartridge. Dory is perfect with the K Andrew sentiment I used. The card has a little added twist, it is a left-handed card. I made one by accident for another challenge but showed it to a friend anyway. She asked me to make her sister one, as she had complained recently that all cards open the same way and it wasn't fair to all the lefties out there. I am trying to keep that in mind now because my son is also a leftie and I never really thought about it before (bad mom:( ). The majority of the paper is from Colorbok. The vellum is Making memories and the yellow is the back of a random patterned paper. I cut Dory at 3 1/4". The vellum is embossed with a cuttlebug folder and the ends were punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The blue bubbles are from Creative Charms and the sentiment is from the K Andrew Designs Splashtastic Summer set. The little pearls on the bottom are Offray. I used Stickles on some of the embossed "bubbles" for a little extra sparkle.


  1. This Card is so adorable. it makes me think of my niece. She loves finding nemo even though she is 21, and Dory is her Fave. Just Keep Swimming. I love it! Thanks for sharing and good luck in the simply Sunday challenge at getting Cricky!
