Good Evening!
Second card of the day! Been to my friends this afternoon for coffee and cake! Shop's  up and running again after the floods..She is a very chatty girl {not like me}! But, I had to laugh.  She had a royal visit whilst  getting straight... Prince Andrew came to the village and called at a number of premises  her shop being one of them! She told me she'd been tongue tied. I've known her for over 20 years! this was a first lol.

Now this little sweetie comes from  House-Mouse Triple CD Collection in digi form.  But, perhaps not in the same order...I first printed the little meece on my card along with the sentiment, easy done cause there a few images so you can decoupage them so I used one of these .....Positioned the Spellbinder die just at the side of him to look like the 'fish bowl'..Then made the fish a tad larger to fit inside  the ring, Otherwise because it's in a square? the black line  which surround the image would have shown ..I've used acetate to cover the bowl..Don't want that water spilling out  lol. Coloured both with Copics.. Paper pieced the tail..I upload a card earlier today for Catch the Bug Challenge..Isn't it nice when you can use up scrap paper right away! didn't want that little meece 'floating' on air.

Adorable card Chrissy, lovely interpretation of the challenge and great design with the fish swimming in his bowl (does he have room to swim:D?)
Glad things are up and running again for your friend ....hope she's recovered from the royal visit!

You've been so creative with this clean layout! And I love the theme of this challenge, I've seen quite a few cards for this one already and they're all so different.

Totally brilliant, a lot of messing about but certainly worth it.

As you have used snippets of paper you could enter this card into the Snippets Playground because as always Anything goes.
