Turning 2

My little niece is turning 2 this month!  I had so much fun creating this card.  I just love those little blow fish!  Sorry for the not so good picture.  This one was supposed to be showing the shaker part in action.  I used little clear seed beads to mimic bubbles.  I had a better picture but being the computer genius that I am, I managed to replace it was another one that I was saving some changes to.  Arggghhh . . . So, this is the only one I have to work with.  It's still cute anyway.
 And here is the inside:

V's Sweet Ideas #26--anything goes
Love to Scrap Challenge #35--running ins circles
Craft Hoarders Anonymous #13--Let's Cycle . . Up Cycle that is! (the clear plastic over the shaker element was packaging that came with some dies I bought)
Word Art Wednesday #144--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Crafter's Cafe #75--Lots of layers
Digi Stamps for Joy #98--new (the fish are from a brand new stamp set--first time I inked them up!)
Delightful Challenges--anything goes
Sentimental Sundays #219--decorate inside & out
Card Mania #53--Birthday Party

Stamps: YNS "Sea Creatures #1" and "Silly Monsters" happy birthday; PTI "Big Birthday Wishes" sentiments on front; SU! "Versatile Verses" sentiment inside
Dies: Spellbinders classic circles, large; PTI "By the Numbers"
PTI Lemon Zest cardstock and ribbon
