One, two, three, four, five...

There's a new challenge starting today over at Little Miss Muffet Challenges.
We want you to use a nursery rhyme as inspiration.
I chose...

One, two, three, four, five.
Once I caught a fish alive,
Six, seven, eight, nine ,ten,
Then I let it go again.
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right.

and here's my card...

I used Sunbonnet Fishing #1, available in rubber from LMM, or for a great buy, you can buy it as part of a combo deal if you'd prefer.

I lightly sponged the sky in before colouring with my promarkers. I drew in the grass bank and the text by hand. The blue paper is an offcut freebie from a mag, the green from Provocraft's 'tags, bags, boxes & more' paper pad (bought way back when I used to have a cricut machine).
The fishy was made using a Quickutz die, I added a tiny bit of foam padding beneath the fin, popping it out a little.

The fabulous Little Misses have more to share over on the LMM blog.

Now it's over to you, let's see your nursery rhyme inspired cards :)
