Fish in a Bowl and a Wedding Card

Hi everyone,
Today I am sharing my cute little Mema's Crafts DT inspiration card.  The inspiration for this card can be found on YouTube (see link below). The challenge will be posted on Monday, May 4th.  Our gracious sponsor for this challenge is I Break for Stamps! and the theme is everyone's favorite...Anything Goes! Come join in on the fun for your chance to win a really cute digi. Our mission for May's challenge was to make 2 cards or projects.  One using an image from I Break for Stamps digis and the other was to use flowers of some kind.  I used the Fish for my DT inspiration card.  The digi can be found by clicking the link.  I Break for Stamps also has the pretty flowers I used for my 2nd card- 2 toned chocolate Sweetheart Flower.  I used the fish because he reminded me of something from the "Little Mermaid".  I'm not sure what kind of fish he represents but for me, I made him a Gold Fish by colour (lol).  PS: if this is you first time trying the water card with the treat cups; be patient. It took me 3 times before I was okay with the results.  He is my supply list and some photos my fish card:

The embossing folder I used worked out well. I made it look like waves on the front and when you open up the card they look like sea shells. 

I love how the Diamond Glaze looks like sparkling sand on the bottom of the fish bowl.

I added a place for a gift or special message.  I Made this card for a wedding but this layout works well for many occasions.
Well that's it for now  but I'll be back real soon with my last couple of Mother's Day cards.   Thanks for stopping by and good luck in the challenge! Hugz from me.
