Don't wait for your ship to come in - swim out to it...

My niece asked me to make a card for her mother's friend; her only request was that it contained a link to her Pisces sign. So, this is the end result...

I really enjoyed making this card and I love the outcome...I made a fish body, cut out a bunch of K and Co. Jubilee paper strips and used a scalloped edged punch to make all the scales...I cut out some beautiful lace
that a friend gave to me and used it for the fins and the tail. I silver embossed the head, put a BoBunny  brad for the eye, and some glossy accents for the lips....

Cut out some of the same paper, ripped and distressed the sides, added a Happy Birthday sticker. Used 3 shell beads and wired them up on the paper.

 I used another BoBunny paper with little fishies on it, used a scalloped circle punch to create the waves, layered them up, put a few dots as bubbles... What d'you think ?


  1. Just wonderful work. Amazing collage. I recognize the lace on the tail as I have some of it. Laura
