i made the bottom card first. and i really like it, but we're shooting for projects which are predominently blue, and i wasn't sure it was really blue enough? particularly since my star, the handsome mister fish, who irl is silvery blue... in the photo just looks plain old grey; plus i've covered up most of the blue clouds in that awesome amy tangerine paper. as it happens, i have two important "guy birthdays" at the end of january, so i decided i'd try a second time with a bluer fish and bluer clouds paper. mission accomplished. or accompfished? ok, no. sorry. nevermind. movin' on...

i used last week's i (heart) card sketch for my layout, admittedly somewhat loosely. the bottom card is a more faithful version, but i accidentally drew my circles a little too small on the upper card, and would've had to trim an awful lot of lovely fish away... so i adjusted!
and now i know you are longing to see what the rest of the SOS dt has made for your delight, so off you go, darlings! ♥
