Hello Chum

My grandson just turned 8.  He has graduated from love of Thomas the Train to Minecraft and Plants and Zombies.  He also loves sharks.  So....my card highlights a big toothy fella on a wibble wobble spring. The background took me as long as cutting out all those little white teeth.  Background is made of three different shades of blue vellum cut in waves and overlapped. A few iridescent sequins for bubbles and some glossy accents on his beady black cardstock eyes finish off my card.  For fun I stuck a few shark riddles inside to give him a giggle. (What does a shark eat for dinner?  Anything he wants!"

It's a hit!  Then back to the Pool.
