Fish Bowl Card

Welcome to all my new followers!! During the Fabulous Fall Blog Hop I gained many followers and I just want to say "thank you" to each and every one of you!

Here is a card I made today.  I love it because it has a little fish bowl on it and uses both clear acetate paper and also vellum!! :)   The bottom layer is vellum, next come all the aquarium layers and then it's topped off with the acetate. The fish is super fun!! the top and tail fin are silver metallic paper, the fish body is blue glitter paper and the head is green glitter paper!


 The fish and bowl were both cut from Create a Critter (bowl at 3" and the fish at 1").
 I added the "bubbles" with clear rhinestones.


The sentiment stamp from Inkadinkado reads "Happy Birthday 2U" around a circle.  I punched it out with a circle punch after I embossed it in green embossing powder. I then mounted it up on Pop dots.


Lastly, I added a sheer blue ribbon I grabbed from the clearance rack at Joanns and added a strip of the blue circles paper (DCWV kids stack from last year) to the inside of the card.


I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
