Guest Designer for My Thought Exactly Stamps

Hi everyone! I am so happy to be a guest designer today for My Thoughts Exactly Stamps! I got this card idea from a magazine, and I realized it would go perfectly with their stamps set "Under the Sea"

I call it "Fishy Day" and it's one of those all occasion cards. I cut the circle for the fish at 3" and I punched 1" circles in the front of the card. Then I cut the fish fins from the goldfish on Create a Critter to add to the fish. I put a little button eye on him and stamped "Best Fishes" from the MTE stamps.

I made the blue bubbles on the front of the card using this highlighter. You can see a little of the ink on the tip. It has an opening on the end that was just perfect to stamp little circles.

These stamps are so cute I just couldn't resist making a sentiment for the inside. This little crab is adorable! and his smile is great. I cut the seaweed from Life's a Beach.

I hope you liked my card and please go check out My Thoughts Exactly stamps. They are going to release a new set August 1st!

I also entered this card into the Papercraft Star Challenge # 55 Anything Goes,
