This is for the Ways to Use It Challenge - Aquarium. I've never had an aquarium, but I've won my fair share of goldfish at a school carnival and so have my kids. We had lots of goldfish bowls! It's a wonderful feeling to win that coveted prize before they were all gone and to carry it home in the plastic bag. I put the colorful banners at the top for the school carnival ambiance. As part of a Color Challenge Bingo prize, Mary Marsh/MaryR917 kindly sent me some strands of banners in different colors. I had this not-so brilliant idea to cut one banner off each strand in order to get a multi-color look, but I didn't do too good putting them together. I guess it really does look like a school carnival now. LOL I stamped the plastic bag & the fish inside, colored fish & "water" with Brushos.
Bonus Challenge to make it shine. So, I stamped the bag on a window sheet, let dry and fussy cut leaving a piece at the bottom to adhere. Put lots of glitter on the "water" before attaching the stamped window sheet piece. Sentiment at bottom hides glue. Die-cut bow hides glue at top. Fun card to make. TFL

I remember when I was a kid we use to have school parties and there was always a fish pond where we could win gold fish in a bag. We use to get so many and my dad would have to help us get them all in the tank. Super cute card. Thanks for the memory.
