I was trying to decide if I had enough time to create a special card for my youngest son's swim teacher but decided I would just grab something from my stash. However, when I learned that this week's challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 was to create something with a fish (preferably from Camp Out), I just knew it was "a sign" to make a special card for Brittney.
The fish was cut using Sesame Street Friends. I cut a couple of layers from a shiny cardstock and then cut the top layer using some fanastic shiny paper that I've had for ages. (I had no purpose when I bought it, but knew it would be great for something one day!) I cut the "thank you" from the same cardstock used for the bottom layers of the fish, and then did a bit of doodling on the letters. I added a black rhinestone for the fish's eye and used my Inkssentials Glossy Accents to create a few more bubbles for the fish. I also added a frame and mat on the inside of the card. I tied a coordinating bow to the outside and asked Peter to write a thank you inside.
I'm submitting this card at Bitten by the Bug 2's fish challenge. After all, they inspired me to make it!! Thanks BBTB2! Peter was thrilled with the card to give his swim teacher.
