I shall have a fishy on a little dishy....

Happy Wednesday everyone!
Everyone having a good week so far? Well it was beautiful yesterday absolutely stunning and today we are getting lashed by wind and makes a change!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

So this card is a card for my hubbys birthday next week....shhhhh! He loves to fish but he also love to snorkel and look at all the beautiful fish and the coral here in Western Australia. So I thought this Edwin would be perfect for him! I also wanted to make a shaker card for him as I know he likes them.

I coloured Edwin with Distress Inks. I used papers from the Kaisercraft collection 'Sandy toes' Its my fave beach collection that they have done. Its just perfect. For the shaker part...well I had the bright idea to die cut lots of little gold fishy. Yup they are tiny and I was cross eyed but it was well worth it! I glued them together so it would be gold all way round not just on one side. I also added blue glitter and some blue sequins to the shaker material. So it looks like the fish are swimming with Edwin in the water. It will be defo something I do yup I must be mad!

The dies ohhhh I had so much fun with these! I literally die cutted my heart out I loved it!!!! I used Go Kreate for the shape of the card. The main dies around the card are from Magnolia. Around the shaker pouch I used and Impression Obsession die and the little fishy are also from there too. I sprayed the die cuts with Iridescent Gold glimmer mist, it really reminds me of that beautiful summer glow you get as the sun goes down.

I added cheese cloth and some gold sparkly mesh behind the image. The awesome lace at the bottom of the card is from Live and Love Crafts and the sentiment above Edwin is from a La La Land crafts.

On the sign I added some mini alphas that read 'Beach life' because we have just moved to the coast and the beach is literally two mins walk from our front door...perfect!

To finish off I added a little charm of a fisherman in his boat with the fish on the line.

Fingers crossed the birthday boy to be doesnt peek in my craft room!

Have a fab rest of the week.
