I had a bit of fun with the Birthday Buddies stamp set from Paper Smooches. This has been a favorite of mine for the last five or so years.
The Paper Smooches challenge is to make a birthday card. The My Favorite Things Day 1 is about the visual triangle. I used the fish to make a visual triangle with your eye following the three fish, with three water bubbles, then the googly eyes. I love having an excuse to use googly eyes!
The paper is MFT Birthday Brights patterned paper. I used Tombow marker colors that matched with the balloons on the paper. The fish are stamped and embossed on Bristol paper, colored with a water brush and Tombow markers from the Tropical collection. Fun challenges and a fun card to create.

Cute card. I like the googly eyes on the fish.
Those eyes are so fun! I love placing them on cards. Thanks!
OMG…these are adorable fishes…love the colors and eyes. Love the patterned paper layer.
Thank you, Gayle! That patterned paper has so many fun patterns and I have used it for inspiration and colors, but this is probably the first time I used a large portion on a card. Fun fish and fun to color!
This is so cute and perfect for the challenges. So colorful but not at all busy – fun card!!
Thank you! The fish are fun.
What a cute card!! The googly eyes are a perfect addition.
I had to raid my daughter’s stash for the googly eyes as I could only find 2 and I needed 3. She has colorful ones, so she better hide them. They look fun to use! Thanks!!
