This is the shark card I made for my brother's birthday. My husband and I went to the beach with my brother and sister-in-law in August and my brother caught his first shark. He was out on an 8hr boat ride with a group of other fishermen. He didn't get a picture of his shark and they are only allowed to keep one per boat, so he had to set it free. I thought this would be perfect for him and I was hoping it wasn't TOO cute for him. I used my friends Life is a Beach cartridge for the shark and the waves. I used my Storybook cartridge to cut out the scallop oval and then I embossed it with my divine swirl cuttlebug embossing folder. I used my black stickles for the black border around the shark. I chalked the waves in white and added a little detail to the waves with my gel pen. I stamped the background with my dots stamp by Judith. The perfect touch was the fishing lure my mom gave me to add to this card. I am really happy with this card and I am so glad my brother loved it. I will have to out-do myself next year though. Hope you enjoy. Happy November!
