I really dislike this card, but it was still fun to make, right up until it all went wrong. My first mistake was using water color paper. My second mistake was wanting the big fish (clown fish??) and seahorse to be shiny and using perfect pearls. All this did was make a shiny blob on the fish and a copper colored halo around him so he looks like the Pigpen of the Aquarium. But it took so long to cut out masks for the plants so I could "hide" the seahorse in them as my hidden treasure that there was no way I was going to redo it. But at least I learned NOT to use perfect pearls on watercolor paper!!
