Something Fishy Going On

I've been playing with my Create a Critter cartridge and really wanted to use the cute goldfish. I had a little fun with this card, and made a girl and boy fish who won't let anything come between them. (Yes, I created a back story for them. It was late, and I should have been in bed.)

The great thing about this card is it was made using ALL scrap pieces of paper. Every, single thing was cut from scraps. Obviously, I love glitter glue, and I used it to accent my design. I also used gems that I've had for more than three years! I only remember that because they were used on some decorations for my wedding.

I stamped a sentiment inside the card using one of my new favorite stamps. I think it sums up the romance between these fish perfectly. This might be my husband's Valentine's card. We'll see.
