GoFish! Thank You Challenge

This week's challenge over at the GoFish! Challenge Blog is all about saying thanks... using your favorite color! Now, as probably one of the most indecisive people you'll EVER meet, I'd have to say choosing a color for this challenge was more difficult than creating the card itself! For the past few years I'd have to say my favorite color is maroon (and I can NEVER find maroon-colored paper) but throughout my entire childhood my favorite color was always blue. To make things a little easier on myself, I chose to make a blue thank you card rather than a maroon thank you card. :)

The image of this card in my head before I made this card was different than how it actually turned out.. don't you hate when that happens?! Sometimes it can be for the good but other times it can be for the bad. In this case, I'm leaning a bit more towards the 'bad' side. Originally I planned on stamping the 'Thank You' sentiment, but unfortunately could only find my 'you' clear stamp and not the 'thank' stamp, so I chose to handwrite it instead, which you can barely see in the picture, although it's easy to see in person.

The hippo is cut at 3" from the Create a Critter cartridge and I made the flags by hand. The background paper is from the Echo Park 'Hello Summer' collection.

Jaded Blossom is this week's sponsor at GoFish! and one lucky winner will receive a prize from them. They do have a super cute stamp collection, if I do say so myself. :) We'd love to see you join us for our thank you color challenge!
