Birthday Fishes

Hey everyone.  I am back again with another card...I know that I neglected my blog for a couple weeks, but I am back at it for a bit, until May 8th that is.  Ill be having surgery on my carpal tunnel, and won't have use of my right dominant hand for 4-6 weeks :(

I entered this card for the Seize the Birthday Challenge this week.  I didn't play along with the Toppings part of the challenge, but always enjoy the chance to play along.

Anyways... Im here to share another card with you, so lets get back to it.

Today I wanted to share with you a card that I made for my dad's birthday and a card order.  I thought that I would double up and make 2 of these cards.  I had purchased this pattern paper a while back, and if you know me you know that pattern papers are sort of my downfall.  I am totally a sucker for cute pattern papers. I don't even know where I got the paper for this card from, but my boyfriend remembered that it was from Hobby Lobby.  Such great paper, I really do wish that I had purchased more.

The image that I paired it with was perfect too.  I coloured the image first, and then dug out this paper, and I couldn't be happier with how well the coloured image matched that paper.

Here's the front of the card...

Here's a side view of the card...
