For a Fin-Tastic Dad!

After making my coffee pot card a few months ago, I've been wanting to make another shaped card.  I have Cricut Design Studio, but do not like it at all.  So, I decided to make one and improvise again by gluing two shapes together at the top.  It works pretty well, not perfect, but is a good way to improvise.  This is a Father's Day card for my husband to give his Dad.  It's pretty simple, but turned out cute.  He eats breakfast every day with friends at Dairy Queen, so we got a gift card as a gift.  You can see the corner of it in the picture.  I put it behind the greeting on the inside of the card.

The fish bowl shape is from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge, as well as the fish, sand (which I embossed with my Cuttlebug) and seaweed (which I added Stickles to).  The sentiment was computer generated and punched.  I also added a few Skittles to look like bubbles.

Click on the picture for a better look.  TFL!  And thanks in advance for any comments.
