Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!!  Here is the card I created for you:
 I love Beta fish; they are so elegant looking with their flowing fins.  And their colors are so rich and vibrant.  I made this fun shaker card to look sort of like a fishbowl.  The embossed top panel reminded me of bubbles.  I used a bit of glitter gel pen on the scales of the fish and also to create a few glittery lines in the fins.  You can see it better in the photo below.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Beta Fish",  "Plant" and "In all things"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"
Sizzix: Circle Flowers embossing folder
