Happy Fishy Wishes

This week's Little Red Challenge is all about COUS - cards of unusual size. We're huge Princess Bride fans here so I especially like the name of this challenge (as Princess Bride has creatures called ROUS - rodents of unusual size). Basically, Jan, this week's hostess, is looking for any size or shape out of the ordinary.


I didn't stray too far from the norm, but I switched up my usual A2 rectangle by using chevron dies, inlaying the small one to create an acetate window. When I first started crafting, I embossed everything and it was so fun to pull out one of my original folders as I created my card! I also used the Aquarium Antics stamp and die sets from Your Next Stamp for all the little critters.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the team has created - and to link up your own COUS!
