Birthday Fishes

I have another Paper Smooches card to share with you! This one uses the set called Birthday Buddies. The story I created here is about a fish who meets up with a fishing net and, instead of getting caught in it, he uses the ropes to hang party banners which were made using the worm's hat. Pretty rebellious, eh? Not getting caught in a net is a good birthday wish - I mean fish - right? ;) The fishing net is, of course, The Twinery's baker's twine in Caribbean, Honeydew and Peapod. I love those three colours together and I mirrored them in the flags and fish scales.

I hope you're all having a fabulous week so far!

Hi Emily, your card is absolutely SWEET!! Love the cute fish, he's got a cheeky grin, or maybe a smug one for not being caught in the net.
