Birthday card featuring a fun little fish, a collaged and embossed background and a digital greeting

My grandson's birthday is coming up and I have made him a card!!  I love this cute little fish (digital image from Blackbery Jelly) so I sized it large and printed it onto white cardstock.  I trimmed it close, watercoloured it and layered it with blue and yellow cardstock.  I created a background by gluing strips of torn cardstock to a substrate - mostly blues with one green one at the bottom.  I passed it through a dotted embossing folder and then adhered it to a navy blue card front.  I adhered the fish image to the background using 3D foam tape.  I found this laser printed greeting (digital from Birdie Brown) in my stash, waterecoloured it and layered it onto yellow cardstock before mounting it to my card front using 3D foam tape.  I added a bit of glitter to the candle and the bubbles using a clear glitter gel pen to add a bit of bling!!!  Really happy with how it turned out!!         Therese
