"Fishing You a Happy Birthday"...{MCT Designer Challenge}

Morning Everyone! Hope you all are having a great week so far!
Boy is it flying by for me...Another day and it is the weekend!!!! We have a busy one to say the least, my son is playing in a baseball tournament starting tonight and going through Sunday. I have my fingers crossed that we ROCK it!! I know the boys can do it for sure!!!

Anyways I am popping in because it is time for another 
My Creative Time  
Designer Challenge!!!
Today's challenge is to use the photo below for your project...
You can use the water, boat, color palette or all of the above to create anything you want.

I ended up using the color palette AND the water for my inspiration to make a cute birthday it is, hope you like it!!!
For my card, I used an A2 card base and added a layer of grey card stock topped with a piece of designer paper that I added a stitching border to. Using the Make a Splash Die and the circle die from the Lost at Sea set, I went about laying out the design of my card. I wanted to add some seaweed to my "scene" and thought that the leaves from the Stitched Pretty Flower set would be perfect :) Once everything was in place, I used my Cameo to cut out the goldfish, adding a PK face in place of the one in the sil file. I colored in the eyes with my white gel pen and added some orange chalk to his cheeks. He sure is a cutie don't you think?
Finally I added some Totally Natural Trendy Twine and my sentiment, which I stamped onto the oval die piece from the Surprise Pop-Out Card Die

My Creative Time Products Used:

Other Products Used:
That's My Boy Paper Pad (Echo Park)
Gold Fish (Silhouette Store)
sewing machine, white gel pen, chalk, pop dots
