Something's Fishy...

Something's fishy here...it's a colorful, ten-minute card!  With no layers, only one repeating image and very little in the way of embellishments, it's not my usual style.  So what do you think - can I pull off clean & simple?

My inspiration for this card came from CAS(E) this Sketch (CTS#280).

  This cute little fish is from the Jar of Love stamp set.  I stamped him (yes, it's a boy fish) randomly in Blueberry Bushel, Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody & Lemon Lime Twist.  The "Best Fishes" greeting is included with the same stamp set.  The outline around the greeting comes from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  I fussy-cut the shape, although the Classic Label punch fits it perfectly (it's on my wish list)!

My only embellishment was 3 glittery bubbles (enamel dots).  

Additionally, I'm submitting this card to Challenge #89 at The Male Room - Fish/Fishing.  Be sure to visit both of these card challenge sites - the talent there is nothing short of amazing!
