Birthday Fishes.....MCT Made in Minutes

Good Morning everyone!!!
It is time for another
My Creative Time's~ Made In Minutes!
 The MCT DT will be sharing quick and easy projects using MCT stamps and dies that you can recreate in no time!
To make my card, after finding the paper pad I wanted to use, took me about 15 minutes to put together. I die cut the top layer using the largest Stitched Rectangular Frame Die and then die cut a circle off to the side using one of the medium Circle Dies. Since I just LOVE to stamp onto pattern paper, I die cut the fishy out and then stamped them onto some fun pattern paper (all the paper I used on my card is from Teresa Collins~Far & Away)
Next I tucked the fish half behind the circle peeking out and placed the other one onto the top of the card front. 
I stamped my sentiment, using the newly released You're a Great Catch onto the card front, added some bubbles that I embellished with glossy accents and then tied the whole card together with some hemp twine.
My finishing touches included using a pear pin hooked onto the hemp twine which I added a die cut and stamped hook to.
I made this card for my FIL's birthday which is this coming Wednesday. He LOVES to fish and I know he will get a kick out of this card.

  3. I like the papers you chose...sort of neutral but lots of contrast! The fish look great on that paper too. I like that you have the fish swimming through the circle and the added clip with the hook and twine is perfect. Beautiful job on your card.
