I thought Fantabulous Cricut's challenge this week to make a card with a joke on it was a cute idea.  I mulled several ideas over in my head and came up with this.

The sentiment was printed on the computer on the bottom of a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of white cardstock, which was then embossed part way down with the Bubbles folder and popped up on foam tape.  The fish are from Life is a Beach in paper from a new pad I got from Pebbles called "Seen and Noted". I used Design Studio to hide all the cut lines where stripes and polka dots were to be and let the paper speak for itself.   Enamel Accents (another purchase inspired by the Pattern Play class) make the eyes dimensional and glossy.

Waiting for the punch line?  Do you know the answer?  Here it is.

Isn't that fun?  I figured I could use the card with a tagline "You're a star in my book."  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
