Sending Bday Fishes Pond & Trees Card

I'm continuing to enjoy my Cricut Explore Air. Today I made this birthday card using a subscribed (joined for 1 yr & it is well worth it) cartridge My Quiet Book. Cut the Pond & Trees with the Cricut cartridge. Embossed the trees with a fav Cuttlebug embossing folder, D'Vine Swirl. Used Craftin Desert Diva's Under the Sea stamp/die to create the Nemo looking fish. Stamped the CCD sentiment.
