Typically I would think of this card for a child's birthday, but in my case I know a big kid who loves yellow and orange and I thought that he would appreciate the balloon that is used to creat the bob on the hat and the tongue sticking out. This is certainly not for everyone, but it made me smile and I hope it makes my friend smile too.

I know that you haven't heard much from me lately, so sorry about that. I seem to be caught up with work, real life, physical therapy and a complete reorganization of my craft room. As far as my craft room goes, my friend, Marilyn, (click here to visit her blog she has a great list of every Cricut cartridge ever released that you can download from her blog) who is not only a total Cricut guru, but she is also quite organized so she is doing most of the labor to get me organized and keeping me on task. I will post photos when we are finished.
Anyway now to the card I am posting today - this is really all about the washi paper that is so gorgeous and lots of layers to accent away. The fish were stamped with glittery gold embossing powder, I did use a blending pen with a bit of green mica powder to color the fish, but you cannot see it very well in the photo. I am sending this as a birthday card to a good friend who lives in Florida and somehow that made me think beaches, hence the fish. She is a golden friend who is just a few days older than me so I feel particularly connected this time of year.
