Gertie

This is a card I made quite awhile ago and forgot to post so I thought today is a good day and better late than never, right?  This digi with those hilarious big fat lips is Whimsy Stamps Gertie Fish.  I used paper from My Mind's Eye Penny Lane paper pad.  I tried something different with the inset piece which was plain blue so I used the Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder to emboss it, then used my brayer and Stampin Up's Iridescent Ice embossing glitter.  I like the look because it does remind me of bubbles.   Lastly, I used dewdrops for the bubbles.  The sentiment is from Whimsy's Garden Bun Fairy Sentiments digi set.

So pretty - if I have said it once I have said it a million times "you ain't no fool kid!" -- I have so much to learn. And the fish said - "kiss me fool, I am all puckered up!"
Wonderful card Marilyn!
