What, of This Goldfish, Would You Wish? Happy World Card Making Day!

Hello Friends! Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my previous post with this Grungy Birthday Card.

Today I am back to say "Happy World Card Making Day to all my paper crafting buddies"!

Can you imagine what the world would be like without handmade cards? I certainly can't! But if anything, it would be a very sad place, I think. So if we can have a special day to celebrate card making - I'm all for it!

To join the celebrations the Stampendous HQ have prepared a collection of the DT's fave cards that they've made & shared this year so far. The card I chose as my favourite of the year was this Sunflower Wedding Card. I adoooore sunflowers so this card kind of fell into the faves bag by default lol. Oh well!

Be sure to check out my DT Sisters' picks - you will be amazed to see what a wonderful and talented bunch they are!

But today I also have another card to share :). The theme for this card was inspired by the old Russian fairy tale The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish. 

The tale is about a fisherman who manages to catch a "Golden Fish" which promises to fulfill any wish of his in exchange for its freedom. I was quite surprised to find out that my British friends weren't familiar with this tale - as it's certainly a well known 'classic' in Poland :). 

With this card I decided to give my Golden Fish a nice fishbowl to live in. The fishbowl is actually a shaker made with 3D Foam Creative Sheets and acetate. Inside the bowl I have some lovely textured bubbles, corals and shells, mica fragments and sequins.

Supplies I used:

Cling Goldfish Pair
Cling Coral Tree
Cling Jumbo Spider Mum (retired)
Cling Build a Bouquet Set
Stack Art Cling Angel Wings Kit
Teal Mica Fragments
Jumbo Perfectly Clear™ Acrylic Handle

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®:
3D Pennants, DODZ™ – 3D, E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips, 3D Foam Creative Sheets, Adhesive Sheets 4×6″, 3D Thin Foam Squares – White

Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®; Paper: Prima Romance (Annalee Collection)
acetate, ribbon flowers, burlap, buttons chipboard alphas; ARMOUR Over’n’Over Sparkle Borders stencil, Spellbinders Labels Eighteen

Evergreen Bough & Wild Honey Distress Inks;
DecoArt: Snowtex, Americana Bright Yellow & Light Buttermilk paints;
Faber – Castell Whipped Spackle
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers: GT2, IB2, CG2, DG1, DG2, BG2, BG5, GB8, GB11, CT2, CT4, OR2, TB1, IG1, Blender pen
Liquid Pearls

I hope you enjoyed my today's offering - I would love to know what you think! If you'd like to make/share a wish, too, please do so - you never know, it may come true! :)

Have a wonderful 'cardmakingilicious' weekend!

Big crafty hugs
