Birthday Fishes!

Since Cath posted the latest Moxie Fab World Challenge: The Cure for the Winter Blues, I've been staring at this paper from My Mind's Eye & wondering what I was going to do with it. Then I read this week's CREATE blog challenge to use confetti, and wah-lah, got it! I'm hoping the confetti trend really is on an upswing, because I've been having a hard time finding it the last couple of years, and people really love the fun of shaker cards. Well, really, what's not to love?

Supplies: papers from MME;
super cute blowfish from Imaginisce (from Allison!);
coloured with Prismacolor pencils;
sentiment from Hero Arts;
Palette Noir ink;
microbeads & confetti from stash

Hard to capture, but a slightly better look at the balloon & heart confetti
For the CREATE challenge to use confetti, you've got until Thursday morning (March 8) to email your card & blog post to Paige (details are at the bottom of the quilt-inspired gallery). For the Moxie Fab Cure for the Winter Blues challenge, you have until Sunday March 11 to link up.

This is adorable! Love the shaker 'puffer' fish (reminds that I need to play with this stamp again, it's too cute)!
