Birthday Fishes!

Have you ever thought about hanging a tag
I always think of tags as hanging DOWN,
 or off from one side...
I wanted the balloon string attached to the tag,
but wanted the tag to "float" UP.
Here's what I came "up" with...
This is the
sketch that inspired it all:
Flipped it over, and there you go!
Have fun playing!
There are no rules...just things that aren't done as a rule!

This fun little card also entered into the "Birthday" challenge at
By The Cute and Girly blog!

This week's challenge at

Anything with Wheels!

 Here is my card using one of our previous sponsors' images,
CI-325 from Crafty Individuals!
I love the way this stamp heat embosses!  Every sweet, tiny detail shows up!

I've found myself needing more masculine cards,
with male friends and family having birthdays and short stays in the hospital. 
That's also why this was left without a sentiment.
This way, I can use it for anything!

In case you're wondering, the black metal embellishment is a piece from an old library magazine storage container. I simply cut the corners and edges that contained the metal strips, and then flattened them and sanded slightly. The containers had gotten wet and were in poor shape anyway, so rather than throw them away, I recycled!

A length of mesh or two, some sprockets attached with brads, some ribbon,
and we're done!
