One of These Things is Not Like the Others

Remember that song from Sesame Street in the 1970s, "One of These Things"?  It was always a highlight for me when I'd watch the show.

It occurred to me when I made this card last night (with already-stamped-and-colored images from my 'baggie') that I included one fish that does not look like the others.  See the different fellow on the top right?  His tail fin is orange, whereas everyone else has a yellow one.  It wasn't intentional, but hey, it's good to be different, right?

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

and played at Let's Ink It Up, where you are supposed to use yellow somewhere on your card.

I used Crystal Effects by SU on the fishes' black stripes and also on their bubbles.  Here is a close up so you might see that better:

The designer paper is courtesy of my 8 year old daughter, Kerry.  It is a sheet from her fashion designing kit.  She wanted me to have it.  Isn't that sweet?  So Kerry, this card is dedicated to you, Punkin!

I hope to stamp another card soon, but forgive me if I don't have another post this week.  I am packing for Disney World!  There is much to do before we leave.

Have a wonderful day!

Stamps:  Very Punny (SU), Absolutely Fabulous (SU)
Paper:  Whisper White, YoYo Yellow, Tangerine Tango, Kraft, dp by Kerry Dietrich
Ink:  Stazon Black, Basic Black
Punches:  1 1/4" and scalloped squares, Modern Label, Designer Label
Other:  twine, silver brads, dimensionals, SU markers, Crystal Effects

How great is this card. It's a good job you told me which was different as I hadn't spotted it.
Thanks for playing along at Let's Ink It Up.

Oh my gosh--I LOVED that segment on Sesame Street!! But I got stumped by your card. Silly me--couldn't see that it was the upper right one that was different. My story is extreme exhaustion from vacation--and I'm sticking with it LOL!! Super cute card, love how you used the sketch :)
