Birthday Fishes

>> Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Hi Everyone,
Don't hate me, but I love a card with a pun :)  Since I was working on birthday cards when I received this Big Mouth Bass, this sentiment came to me right away and knew that I had to make it happen. 
I made the background using the Bubbles stamp, stamping in both blue and green ink.  Then I stamped, colored and die cut the fish.  After adding a black mat, I decided it need something more, so I added some bubbles coming from his mouth and embellished those with some Stickles.  Wanting even more for my somewhat ordinary card, I stamped the fish again, colored him and fussy cut him out and added him with some dimensional dots.
For the sentiment I used the Birthday Wishes Greeting, leaving the first letter in each word un-inked.  That allowed me to use a circle punch and add a die cut glitter letter to create the birthday pun.
Here is a closer look at the fish and sentiment.

Well, what can I say but, "Best Fishes" to you and yours!
Have a great one :)
