Birthday Fishes

Here is a very, VERY quick card that took me just a few minutes to make. I didn't time myself but it was well under 10 minutes including rethinking the design.


The stamps I used are a recent Creative Stamping freebie. Originally I'd planned just to have the goldfish in his bowl and the sentiment on the front of the card, but it looked a bit TOO CAS, the "I'm not really trying" kind of look. A subtle bit of sponging around the area of the fishbowl and a scattering of enamel dots made all the difference.

I am sharing this with

Less is More - Tangerine, aqua and white

Fantastic! A beautiful card all in under 10 minutes - that is awesome. Such a sweet little goldfish image Jane and the subtle watery colour on the background really softens the card. Love those bright enamel dots...they look like air bubble in water. Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More xx

Oh, I love this! I had to come over for a visit after I uploaded my card to the AAA cards challenge. This just jumps off the page! So cute!

I often make a card and look at and think nope I don’t like this so I leave overnight and go back to it the next day and then by adding that little bit extra it becomes finished. I love your extra colouring and the enamel dots which do just put that extra bit of finish. Hugs Mrs A.
