Get Well Fishes

My husband's job holds monthly challenges for their work sites and this month each person had to make a get well card for an ailing co-worker and of course I had to handle this one for him. I wanted to do something cheerful and whimsical so I decided to send "get well fishes" instead of 'wishes". I think I finally got my money's worth out of my Cricut for this card because almost everything was cut out on the Cricut. To made the card shaped like a fish bowl I used the Cricut craft room to weld the shapes and cut them out. I embossed the "water" using a cuttlebug folder and I added Martha Stewart glitter for the "sand". The clam has an actual pearl inside and the larger fishy has googly eyes. The fishes are the same image I just used the flip feature on the Cricut expression and made one larger than the other. All of the die cuts are from the Sponge Bob cartridge except for the fish bowl and the fishes, they are from the Sesame Street cartridge. I added a clear acetate die cut of the fish bowl as an overlay for a more glass-like effect ( I don't know if you can tell in the photo). Inside the card says "Well anybody could send get well wishes, hope you feel better soon!
