365 Cards - Day 131 - Ad Inspired

I love the Ad inspired challenges that Pam sets over at 365 Cards and Day 131 just happens to be one of those challenges.

So, here is how this challenge works - take the above image and use it to inspire your card.
This great image was picked by the super talented Amy, so what do you see in this image?

I see the white boards on the walls, the splash of Red and those Dr. Seuss Shower Curtains so my card is based on those elements and the Dr. Suess book 1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.

Here it is

I took a White card and cut the circle in it, this was surrounded by the Red before I scored lines using my Score Pal.

I recently bought a great paper stack by DCWV for making Kids cards with and this was the first time I used any of it, I used the Blue Fish paper at the bottom of the card. I cut 2 strips with fancy scissors, 1 Blue and 1 white to mimic waves and mounted these behind the Fish Paper.

I printed the Blue fish onto white paper and added the sentiment, this was then adhered to the inside of the card so the fish would show through the circle when the card is closed. To finish I added a colourful ribbon, only about 4 yards of this left to use!

I think this will make a great Kids Birthday card for almost any age.

What do you think?
