Sending You Birthday Fishes!


This bright, colorful card was designed for the Monday Challenge #15 at My Craft Spot.

This week's challenge:  Sunny Days!
  (anything that reminds you of summer)

Bright colors, water =fish!!!!!!
 I could not get the colors to photograph well! In RL the pinks are brighter!

I put eyelets all around the circle around the fish, to make it look like a portal hole.
I saw this tip in this month's "CardMaker" magazine. I thought that was so cute!

The fish was made on my Cricut Expression with the "Create a Critter" cartridge.
I 'colored" the pink parts of the fish with Glossy Accents (Ranger). I added a wiggly eye. After all, what fish do you know that doesn't have big eyes! 

I made the sentiment on the computer and printed it on white card stock.

Thanks for stopping by! Thanks so much for your sweet comments!
