Welcome to the first day of our September blog hop for Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.  I hope you'll join us every day through Friday for the hop.
Here's my card for today
The white is the envelope that I stamped with the koi fish. I stamped the koi on snow storm smooth CS, colored him with Spectrum Noir alcohol pens and then fussy cut it out.  Now that I look at the card, I should have fussy cut the lily pad out too.  Oh well, next card.
Stamps:  Koi Fish
Paper:  Snow Storm smooth, blue from stash
Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black
Misc:  bling nesties, Spectrum Noir pens

Here's the Design Team:

I like your fussy cut koi. I find myself doing fussy cutting more and more. It adds so much and yours looks great on your card.
