I would love some ideas to finish off this card. It is for a techniques class on Bubbles Background. I want to keep it fairly simple.

OMG what a PERFECT card to showcase this technique! I'm not sure what else you'd need to add to it, unless maybe a paper clip or something on the left side border thing. But really, it's really cute just like this!

LOVE IT! Yes, do share the bubble background technique, it is perfect for this card!!!! As for an addition, I would say it's great the way it is but if you need to add something, just a piece of light blue or white hemp on top of the bblue to bring the lighter colors over to the left.
Great as is though!!!!

It's not finished?? It looks great! Love the bubbles!! If I were to add anything, maybe it would be a quarter circle "Sun" (using 1/4 of the circle from one of the Shapes sets) in the upper right corner and maybe draw some short sun rays (or not). It looks great like it is.

I think the card looks great as is! But since you are looking to add a little something. What about a few little light blue bubbles coming out up above the fishes mouth going up towards the words? ( use the fine tip of the marker)TFS

THIS IS DARLING!!! Maybe some shadowing around the words, (watercolor style) and some glitter on the fish!! That would be cool! THOUGH I LOVE IT!!! Keep things simple for newbies is important!!
