Reverse Confetti October Sketch #17 Challenge

I've recently discovered Reverse Confetti and purchased a few stamps.  Every month they have a challenge and I decided to use the sketch they provide.  The challenge is called, Sketch For You To Try.  October is sketch #17 and looks like this.


Pretty easy one.


I started with an ivory card base 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, top folding.  I used some retro pattern paper from SU for the 2 vertical panels.  I cut an ivory tag using the smallest die from the Tag Me set.  Love how tiny it is.  I stamped 2 fishes in different colors from the Happy Harbor stamps.  I thought they looked like they were kissing, especially the way I positioned them.  I found the perfect size heart from I Like You.  I added some heavy aqua twine and made a bow.



Now comes the tricky part.  I wanted a certain wording for the sentiment so I pieced words from 2 different stamp sets.  I found "your" in the Dream In Color stamp so I cut it from the original phrase, "live your life in".  Yes, cut the stamp apart!  Then I used "kisses" and "make" from I Like You.  The finishing words "me happy" were from Dream In Color.  I put all the words on an acrylic block to stamp my sentence.


An original sentiment that works perfectly with my cute kissing fish.


Actually, making this card AND kisses make me happy!
