Cuttlebug Be Inspired #19 Challenge

This weeks challenge from Cuttlebug Challenge blog was to use embossed acetate in your design. It must have been fate because my SU order arrived and there was my new Fishy Friends set just waiting to be put together, inked up and used for this challenge! I decided on my Divine Swirls folder to simulate ripples of water after cutting out a circle of acetate using my Nesties. I then used the smaller circle to cut the front of the card and stick in the acetate to make my fishy's bowl. My fishy's background was also cut out in a circle and then stuck to the inside of the card. The rest is fairly self explanatory - but feel free to email me if you have any questions.
Colours used - Pretty in Pink, Old Olive
