CAS-ual Fridays...Red, Black, and White + Inspired by a Book

When Clean and Simple got together with CAS-ual Fridays last month...I thought...another Clean and Simple challenge...well let me try my hand(s) at it!!  This week's challenge is to make a card inspired by a book and is to be made with the colors red, white, and black.  I don't read many books, but when my children were little, a couple of their favorites and mine were Rainbow Fish and Grouchy Ladybug.  Now, the ladybug was PERFECT for this challenge with the red and black...but I thought I would try a fish, too.  Not rainbow...red, black and white, but I did put some shiny gel on his gills to look kind of rainbowy....a little different, but fun.  Not sure about either, the ladybug one was made using a sketch from Papercrafts latest magazine...hmm...just ok:)...Here they are:
 Made with a set from Hero Arts and an embossing folder. Here's a close up of the gills:
 And here's the ladybugs:
 Made with punch from Martha Stewart and sentiment from Hero Arts.  Here's the inside:
What a fun challenge...LOVE red, white and black....the book made the challenge...fun!!
Thanks for looking, hope you have a great weekend!!

EDIT....Oops!! I was a day too late to put my cards in the challenge...my bad for not reading a bit more thoroughly:(!!
