For my 7 year old cards, I decided to use fish as the theme. So, we will start out with Nemo! Isn’t he just the cutest! I kinda followed Niki's’s layout. She used a retired butterfly punch for his tail. I don’t have that punch so I used the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die for mine. I also followed Simple and Sincere’s tutorial for making a fish hook from a paper clip. I needed to use over half the paper clip for mine. I balled up a piece of wax paper and pounced the card with Bashful Blue ink for the sky. I used the ¾” x 15/16” oval punch to cut the waves at the top of the blue DSP.
Here is the poem I used for this 7 year old card.
You’re a little fish, you like to swim
We can't catch you, 'cause you have fins
When you swim past your friends, we hear them say
Stop your swimming and come and play!
Happy 7th birthday!
