Yipee! I'm having so much fun that I'm skipping ahead. This card - "Poetic" uses the Fish from Starving Artistamps Birds and Fish set - the two fish together had a very Yin/Yang look to me so I gave my card an asian touch with some BEAUTIFUL paper I got as a gift.
I embossed the leaves, the fish and "Poetic" from the min positive words set and the little line of dots from the Doodledads set with Gold Encore Ink and Gold EP from Stampin' Up! The card base and fish cardstock are real red, and the gold cardstock is Brushed Gold (SU!) I punched out a piece of brushed gold with my word window punch and put two red eyelets and some gold cord through it.
Now I kinda want some Chinese food!!
