Pinkalicious Blog Hop Challenge...

Look at me go!  Two posts in 1 day.  Hehe!  Weeeellll....This one is for the My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop ChallengeHere is the challenge: Use Black and your favorite color or colors.  My favorite color is pink!  But I also wanted to incorporate other colors for this cutsie fish bowl card. 

I used BLACK as my card base, in the stitching, for the fish shadow, and in the phrase.  I made a PINK fish and used PINK ribbon.  I used two different BLUES for the bowl and the water. Then GREEN and BROWN for the accessories. 

~Cartridge: Create A Critter
I used my Gypsy to weld the fish bowl shape into a card with the fold at the top.  The card is cut out at 5" in width.  The fish is 1.5". 
~Cardstock: CTMH
~Ribbon: I got in the mail just today from my aunt.

 To get the glassy water effect, I used a clear plastic gift baggie.  I used my Cricut to actually cut it out in the same shape as the darker blue.  I used low pressure and set my blade to 4 and it worked perfectly.  Then I just glued the edges and left the top open.
 I used My Pink Stamper's Even More Punny-licious stamp set...."You're a great catch." Thought it was cute and fitting!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
