cute little birthday fishes!

i have found that i have been making a lot more birthday cards, recently. which is good, since i always seem to need them at the last moment! but it's odd, because i definitely tend to make WAY more just because, or love, cards! i don't know why!
what kind of card do you make most often?

so with that said, i have another birthday card to share! 
i made this one for the current runway inspired challenge going on! it's such a pretty inspiration photo! i LOVE the background of the photo...the fog and trees and softness. sigh. so cool!


my card however, mostly focuses on the skirt, as a source of inspiration! :) and i really love how my card turned out!

i used some distress paints that i just received recently. LOVE DISTRESS PAINTS PEOPLE!! they're SO fun!!! and i'm DYING to find new ways to use them, so please - hit me up if you've worked with them!

the cute little fish and sentiment is from the paper smooches birthday buddies stamp set! this is an oldie set, but i LOVE it still!
all of the fish were colored with copics and then popped up for dimension! 

i die cut a little 'wave' from vellum and heat embossed the sentiment and then added a few pearls to the card to represent the bubbles!

fun, right?
i hope so!
ok, back to a very full, but very fun, weekend!
