I love a challenge!

This is one of those cards that I was working on in my head for weeks before I actually put it together.  Wow, now I am suddenly feeling inadequate with all the pressure I've just put on myself!  ;-)

The Create a Critter cartridge is just full of hidden gems!  I LOVE this little fish bowl and have been dying to make a card with it, so when I saw that the theme for Challenge Me Monday at Fantabulous Cricut was "At the Zoo" I took my chance to make my fishy card.

A word to the wise:  when you are using this cartridge to make a fish to go inside your fish bowl, DO NOT assume that if you leave your size dial at the same setting that the fish will be the correct size!  I cut the fish bowl at 3 1/2" and ended up with a fish that was enormous!  I ended up cutting the fish at 1".  Now what am I going to do with an enormous paper goldfish cracker...?
