Fishy Birthday Wishes

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a fun Tic Tac Toe board for you:
No photo description available.  
Here is what I created for your inspiration:
I used the diagonal: By the Sea, Texture, Bright colors.  The card was mostly inspired by the blue patterned paper in the background.  I found a larger scrap of it a couple months ago and used a bit for another water card.  I had three small pieces left and I have had this idea in my head since I made the other card.  The three scraps were just exactly the right size.  I added texture with a "bubble" stencil and used it to dry emboss the main panel.  For a bit of extra fun, I made it into a shaker card by adding some clear seed beads to each circle to represent air bubbles.
I had to use the mirror image technique for the fish in the top circle to add a little interest.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.
