Christmas `fishes'

Hello there, it has been a while since I last posted a card on this blog ... I have been busy working on my family holiday albums and decided to take a break and make this card for my Sister who recently bought herself a fishing boat and loves fishing ...
The little fish out of Annabelle Stamps - beside the sea were used and I made a little fish bowl out of a circle die.  Here is a close up of the fish and bowl ...
Although my photo doesn't show it clearly but there is coloured sand at the bottom of the fish bowl.  To make my fish bowl I cut a circle out of acetate, trimmed the top, notched a ledge and then used a smaller circle to finish it off.
I would like to enter this for the following challenges:
Annabelle Stamps - christmas
Party Time Tuesdays - use twine or hemp
Creative Card Crew - pearls (speech bubble and holly berries)
Retro Sketches #89
Materials used - White cardstock; Carta Bella merry & bright papers; Annabelle Stamps beside the sea, MFT mini banner day alphabet, Paper Smooches he said she said stamps; Staz On jet black, olive, blazing red, Versa Color sky blue and turquoise inks; Acetate; Circle cutter; Kaisercraft red and black pearls; The Twinery maraschino twine; Mocha sand; Prismacolor pencils; Sizzix scalloped frame die.
Thanks for looking.
