Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Tropical Trip


It's time for another Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!  This time our challenge is entitled "Tropical Trip".

I am still revelling in the memories of our trip to Hawaii earlier this year, and this inspiration photo immediately made me think of the beautiful, tropical fish we saw while snorkeling there.  Having no fish stamps meant checking Pinterest for ideas, and there I found some great punch art fish. In the end, I decided to case this card.  Wanted to use a larger googly eye, but didn't have any in my stash so had to settle for this smaller one.
