Bazinga! & Fintastic Friend

This is my second post of the day, please scroll down to see my card for Practicing Creativity's July release sneak Peek!

I made this card for the Grand Opening Party of Squigglefly's Papercraft Planet group. Please hop over to the group and say hi. You can also meet all the new DT members , get some freebies to play with and join a fun challenge!

The cute fishbowl image is a new release called Fintastic Friend by Michelle Bertuzzi available at Squigglefly. After coloring it, I added some Glossy Accents to the lower part of the fishbowl for the shiny water look.

The patterned papers I used are from Shimelle Laine's new digital kit
Bazinga! I love the beautiful summery color palate of this kit and decided to make a wavy background for a change. After printing the orange grid background, I printed strips of various patterned papers from the kit. I hand drawn some curves on them, then cut out. After arranging and gluing them down on the background, I did some machine stitching to add a little interest. I used the alphas that came with Bazinga! kit for my sentiment.

Also, to celebrate reaching 300 followers at the Squigglyfly blog, there is a 30% off coupon for your purchase at the store through Sunday the 4th. Here is the discount code:
