Birthday Fishes

I CASE'd this card from Heather Nichols. I LOVED the color combo for a masculine card, so I only changed the size and the sentiment. I did make it into a pocket card so that it would be easy to put in $$ or a gift card. I kinda wing'ed the pocket and added the extra panel to keep money from falling out. This is also my first time using Hodgepodge hardware! I've had the box for awhile but always kept saving it (a.k.a. hoarding it). Speaking of Heather Nichols, I love, love, love what she does with Kraft cardstock, so much so, that I bought a pack for myself. I like how colors look a little washed out with it, hopefully I can come up with just as many uses for it!

I added a few Rain Dots to the bubbles to make them stand out a little.

Here's the inside, where I used a sentiment from Birthday Basics. I also cut one of the fishies out and popped him up
Fine Print:
Stamps: PTI Pond Life, Pond Life sentiments, Birthday Basics
Paper: SU! Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Kraft Cardstock; Misc. Vellum
Ink: SU! Old Olive, Whisper White; Pallette Pallet Noir; PTI Perfect Match Aqua Mist

Don't know who the lucky person will be who gets this card!!
Thanks for looking!
