Bubbly Best Friends!

Har prøvd meg på en litt 'CAS' stil denne gangen ~ noe jeg finner utrolig vanskelig! Å ikke lesse på med stæsj og la det være igjen rene og åpne flater på kortet er jo nesten umulig! ...vel jeg bare 'måtte' bruke distressinks på kantene, det er et must ;) 

Det kjempesøte fiskemotivet er fra KJArting som er en av våre to sponsorer i denne ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #105. All Dressed Up er også sponsor, og om du blir med kan du være så heldig å vinne en premie fra en av dem! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :)

I have made an attempt to do a CAS card, which is the most difficult style for me to do ~ to NOT use a lot of stamping and embellishes, and to do open areas on the card is almost impossible *lol* I did try, but I just 'had' to add some distressinking to the edges, that is sort of compulsory on my cards ;) 
As you see I have added lots of glossy accents to one fish and it made taking a photo of the card a bit difficult, this was the best out of twenty!

When diecutting all the circles for my card I decided to make some of them be openings into the card for a fun effect! It can be tricky to geet the bubbles that fit exactly fitted on the reverse side, but I found that covering the holes on the front with removable tape/washi, then placing the cutouts into the holes and putting glue on the backs, and closing the card ~ made them adhere exactly where they should be!
We have two fab sponsors this fortnights challenge again at Creative Fingers challenge #105. ~ All Dressed Up, and KJArting who gave me this sweet fishy digistamp to work with ♥ As always our theme is ~ Anything goes, and you are welcome to join with your creations! :)
