Fishing you a great day

Happy Monday!! Hope ya'll had a great weekend. I know that I did! Are you ready for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut? We have a great challenge for you this week. Our theme is "Cricut Choice". Create a card, layout or papercraft using at least 1 embellishment, 2 pattern papers, and 3 cricut cuts. I went with a 6x6 card for this challenge. I used two cuts from the B is for Boy cartridge and one cut from the Live is a Beach cartridge. I cut the fish bowl that is in the #7 spot on the overlay of the BIFB cart. I cut it at 4 inches. I also cut the fish from the same spot, but it is the layer. I cut one at 2.5 inches and two at 2 inches. The coral is from the LIAB cart. It can be found on page 68. Since I used my Gypsy Girl to design my card, I hid one of the pieces of coral that I didn't want to use and seperated the other two so I could make them different colors. I cut them both at 2.50 inches. The designer paper I used inside of the fishbowl is from Flair Designs-One Fish, Two Fish-Hit The Beach Collection. The bg designer paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle-Girl Green Stripe. The sentiment if from the Amusing Animals stamp set from Scrappy Mom's. I finished off my card with some bling in each corner of the sentiment piece. Head on over to Exploring Cricut and check out the amazing projects that my DT Sisters and Brother have created. Awesomeness for sure!! Then head to your crafty space and get crafting a project to enter. Make sure it is a new project, that you follow the guidelines of the challenge and that you provide a link to Exploring Cricut so others can find us and join in on the fun. You have until Saturday, 9pm EST, Feb. 2nd to link your project. And who knows, you just might be the lucky one to win the great prize!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

I've seen fish bowls on other cards but this is the prettiest I've seen. Your choice of paper for the background in the bowl makes all the difference. Great job.
