Loving the NEW Shimmery FISH!

OK... I love goldfish. I really think I used to be one or maybe a mermaid and my best friend was a fish??? Anyway, they call to me! So when I saw this set... I knew I had to have the darn thing! It comes with a bowl, all of the fish bowl accessories and the fish themselves! You can create your own scene! SO I DID... let me tell ya how!
First, I cut a circle and did the medallion thing with a NEW corner punch I got for Christmas. Then I stamped the fish in their bowl and added the castle,coral and streamers. I colored them with copics and of course had to add my FAVE new product, SHIMMERZ, that you can get at my friend Susana's store.I love to order with her because you ALWAYS get a little extra in the order, she is very generous! I ran the green through the cuttlebug to make the textured background and sponged it . I thought this ribbon was the perfect match, so I cut a slide with my cuttlebug and wrote the sentiment on their myself! (a very bold move as I do not like my hand writing AT ALL!) A few dots were added with glitter and gel pens and here is my creation! This card was fun to make and I hope you try some of the new products that I mentioned here, like SHIMMERZ... you will LOVE it!
