C4C472 Aquarium Birthday Card

Hello my crafty friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. Our February hostess is Kathleen Adams. Kristine Reynolds joins us as our Guest Designer this month  and you can find her blog at:  Stamping and Scrapping in California.  

This is Kathleen's challenge:  "Today is National Dog Biscuit Day so put a pet on your card. It doesn’t have to be a dog."

Usually I put a dog on any card that has a pet theme, but I'm having so much fun playing with this stamp set by Your Next Stamp that I decided to use it instead. Since two of our grandkids have fish as pets, it counts! This will be our grandson Zachary's birthday card.

I stuck with 'boy' colours but did add a touch of shimmer to the fish and turtle shell. These fish would be super cute with tiny wiggly eyes added, but I figured Zachary would try to pop them off right away so these ones got their shine from a black glaze pen. 

I think this card would be fun to make again for the grandkids to take to birthday parties, so that is also on my list of things to do. I also want to make a different variation for our grandson Ilai as they have a large aquarium at home and he has his own little one in his bedroom.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C472.
