O-Fish-Ally Awesome Birthday Card for April Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Joyful Stars Blog Hop! We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who share something each month on the 9th and at 9PM EST. If you are coming from Joyce Hauck's blog you are on the right track. (The complete lineup is on Joyce's blog in case you get lost.) Have fun being inspired! 

My sister is celebrating a milestone birthday next week and I made her this card featuring Close to My Heart's April Stamp of the Month called "O-Fish-Ally Awesome".  The card is 5" wide by 6.5" long to accommodate the fish bowl size.

The background panel is Carolina card stock .  The patterned papers are from Craft On.  The fish bowl was stamped in Intense Black ink and colored in with Spectrum Noir Tri Blend Markers.  The water area of the fish bowl was brushed with a Clear Shimmer Brush. The twine is White and Bronze.

Here is the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch that inspired my card layout:

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
     Sketch Saturday--Create a Scene
     Daisy Chain Challenges--Birthday
     FabnFunky Challenges--Birthday
     Seize the Birthday--Option Spring Fling

Now it's time to head over to Krista Hershberger's blog --I'm sure you'll be inspired by what she has to share.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
:) Marie
