Happy Birthday Card and Best Fishes

What a better way to wish someone a "Happy Birthday" and "Best Fishes"?

After I was left with all these wonderful marbled papers, I got to think about what to do with them. One idea that came immediately to my mind was water, sea or ocean....right?

I first created my card base with a fold on the top. I used some LawnFawn curve dies that I have in my stack and cut through the card base, the blue marble paper and some teal cardstock that I had laying around. 

First I added a piece of acetate to the front that was now missing the bottom part. Next I used the teal waved paper and added it to the end of the acetate on the front. Leftovers from the marbled paper were adhered to the top of the acetate right below the card base part.

On the inside I adhered a matching piece of cardstock from the front part and the marble paper that resembles the ocean.

I did cover the back on the front panel with a piece of cardstock too, so you wont see the adhesive that shows through the acetate.

To cover the part were acetate, ocean waves and the top of the front card base meet I used a small strip of cardstock.

I cut a few leaves and tucked them behind the front cardstock bottom and added the little fish to the acetate. I stamped a couple of swirls in different shades of blue and my phrase to the front top and my Happy Birthday card was done.
