Birthday Fishes - Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge

(((If you're looking for my Day 5 Growing in Unity Post - click HERE or just scroll down)))

I am SOOOO excited to share this card with you!!! Ever have one of those light-bulb moments, when you look at a sketch, and suddenly see the perfect finished card? Yeah...this was one of those! I was looking at this weeks Paper Smooches SPARKS sketch - and suddenly this popped into my head:
Here is the sketch photo:

I pretty much right away saw waves, and remembered these cute fishies! I pulled out some Echo Park paper to begin with, and trimmed it into the banner shape.
Next, I stamped and cut out the cute little fishes on some orange paper, and couldn't resist - I added some wiggly eyes! 
I attached them with foam adhesive to the "waves," added the bubbles, then attached that entire piece with foam adhesive to the card base. 
Finished off by stamping the sentiment with two different colors of PTI ink to coordinate, then added a twist of Baker's Twine and a button from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by to see me today! Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
