Fishing you a happy birthday

I had been wanting to try a shaped card for ages. I was always intimidated, but the challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenge was to make a shaped card. I was going to make a flower shaped card, but I wanted to create an aqua card to incorporate the challenge at The Pink Elephant before I ran out of time. Wasn't sure how to put together aqua and a flower, but then my 10yr old decided to help and came up with a better idea. "How about make a fishbowl!" Totally random, but that's why I love him!!! Hahahaha. I decided to keep searching through blogdom for ideas until found this sketch at Card Patterns and this is what I came up with:

The sentiment on the inside says, "fishing you a happy birthday." The fishies are glitter rubons. I couldn't find seaweed looking embellies, but when I saw the challenge over at Practical Scrappers was to use stickers, I dug through my stickers and found this tree I thought would work okay. The bubbles are clear bubbles stickers by Joanns store brand. Which totally fits the challenges at 365 cards and The Creative Cottage. Papertake Weekly posted a challenge to do something different and this is totally different for me. :) I've never combined so many challenges in one card, but everytime I got stuck, I found another challenge to 'unstick' me! :)
