So Glad We're Friends

The current challenge at House Mouse and Friends is to create a card using your favorite football team for inspiration. Now before you ask what these two buddies have to do with football, I'm using the jersey colors of my favorite team, the GREEN BAY PACKERS! Green Bay Packer colors are green and yellow.

I would never be able to pick one out of my House Mouse stamps as my favorite, but I must say that this stamp, simply titled "Fish Bowl" is high on my list. Too cute! The sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up! set called "Best Yet."
The "gravel" in the bowl is a product that is fun to play with. It is a product from Art Glitter called Gala Glitz. It contains a variety of micro beads in various colors and mica chips. Once I put it in place on the card I then covered the entire fishbowl with clear Glossy Accents. Then it was just a matter of waiting for it to dry and my card was ready to assemble.

I used my Cuttlebug circles embossing folder to give the appearance of bubbles in the background.
The weekend is here and before it rains I had better get outside and do some yardwork. Hope you have a super weekend.

Until next time,
