Milestone Birthday – 7 years old – B07c

Another great card I found on Pinterest!  Too cute not to copy!  The bubbles and the card front are Bermuda Bay. The card is Taken With Teal.  To make the background, I wrapped about 6 rubber bands around my brayer, inked with Bermuda Bay ink, and rolled.  Techniqueszone has a great tutorial for this technique.

The grass is stamped with Old Olive.  The fish is punched using the 1-3/8" Circle Punch in Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango.  The lips are punched using the Trio Flower punch and the fins are punched using the 5-Petal Punch.  The eye is a brad. I used the 1-1/4" Circle Punch at the top to make the waves.

Here is the poem I used for this 7 year old card.
Emerald blue and turquoise green
 a shimmering surface, silver screen
 broken by the sun's bright glare
 the fish beneath are unaware.
 Their bodies lined with shinning scales
 their fins are underwater sails,
 they twist between the golden beams,
 on unseen currents and hidden streams
 and form a school that twists and glides,
 a shape with many moving sides,
 a thousand silver darts as one
 lit up beneath the sea and sun.
Happy 7th birthday!
