Bubbly Birthday

Hopefully I can get this loaded in time for Kristina's Color Inspiration challenge tonight. We were to use Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Bordering Blue, Sage Shadow and Certainly Celery.
I just loved the soft colors, and thought it would be a cool way to use these cute new sets I just got from i {heart} papers. Oh, and I have another family birthday next week, so this little fishy will be swimming its way to my niece Hannah in California.

What you can't really tell in this scan (couldn't seem to photograph it well either) is that the fish bowl has acetate behind the cut-out, and it's raised on dimensionals.

And speaking of i {heart} papers, one of my fellow design team members is offering some bling-y blog candy right now. Hurry on over to Amber's blog to enter!

What I used:
Stamps: Sushi Bowl Party & Sushi's Favorite Words (Stampendous)
Ink: Palette Noir, various markers
Paper: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, white
Other: acetate sheet, Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon (SU!), Circle Nestabilities

I just saw Sushi (hilarious name for a fish, no?) on IHP last night for the first time. I love her! There are so many cute things, I'm having a hard time deciding what to get next time!
