Isn't this image the cutest?! You can pick it up yourself at DOODLE PANTRY. This cute Digi is called BETTA FISH AND BOWL.

I made this card for today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE.

This card is also for DARE TO GET DIRTY 2010 challenges by joanervin and Suzzanjdean.

I was inspired by the movie Pinnocio where the woodmaker has a pet fish in a bowl.

This is a very simple card. I used Microsoft publisher to help me set it up for printing right on my card. I inserted a text box and made it 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 at the bottom left side of a portrait page. Then I inserted the sentiment and bowl. It printed I cute it to my card size and folded in half. Then I cut out the fish I printed after coloring it and sponging the edges. Adhered it to the bowl with a pop up dot. Simple. That is all there is to it.
