Something's Fishy...

Happy Saturday!
I am trying again for the guest designer at My Favorite Things!
Just the thought of working with all those creative ladies is exciting, BUT then, they throw in over $100 in MFT products. I just can't resist...
So here are my cards. I made two:

I used the so cute, a la modes, Something's Fishy for both cards.
They asked us to use a Touch of Texture.

I just used the fish from "Something's Fishy" for this card.
The DP is BoBunny Barefoot & Bliss . I made a "fish bowl" using beads, window sheets, and foam tape.
I added scales to the fish with sequins and used stickles on the fins for a little sparkle.
All the circles are cut out with spellbinders.
And I stitched all the layers with the sewing machine.

The rope is decorative trim from Hobby Lobby. I used a tacky sheet and made the circle and then
cut around it on the tacky sheet. I added two buttons from my stock and used the
Fishtail Banner die-namic.
The sentiment is from the Notched Tag die-namic stamp set.
I used the Jumbo Scallop die-namic at the bottom for my water. The yellow is textured paper, and the orange I used a dottie embossing folder. The small circle with the button  on the top left is also from the Fishtail Banner die-namic.

This is my second card. I like the thought of her reaching into the fishbowl and pulling out
something other than a how about some LOVE.

The DP is BoBunny Barefoot & Bliss and also, Lime Twist by MME. I used cystal lacquer on her boots and the fishbowl. (Do you think it looks like a flower pot?) The heart is from the Notched Tag die-namic. The big scallop square nestie was cut out using crinkly brown paper from the Paper Studio. I paper pieced her top with scrap su paper and her pants are pieced with scraps of denim. The rest is colored with copics.
