CASology#77 and Paper Smooches Sparks Week #1

Wow.  That is a long title, but to be expected when you are playing along with two challenges with one card.  This is my sweet friend Joyce (Cards by the Sea) first week on the Design Team for CASology...big, exciting news for all of Joyce's friends!  Go Joyce!!!  I wanted to play along with this week's challenge (Casology Week #77), especially when I saw the cute theme for this week...Bubbly!
Lucky for me too, Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Week #1's theme is Anything Goes, so my card can serve two purposes.  I love it when that happens.
Also, today, I have a re-freshed blog.  I was referred to Jessica of Creations by Jessica Lynn who gave my blog a badly needed make-over.  She's creative, fast, and very reasonably priced, so if you want to make over your's a link to her Etsy store.  You won't be disappointed!

On to my card...
I don't have any of my own Paper Smooches stamps yet, but I have friends who do and I borrowed a few sets to get me started on their challenges.  Lucky me!  This set is Surf and Turf and has some really cute bubbles that fit the CASology theme of bubbly.  I colored the fish with copics and added glossy accents to all the bubbles.  
This card is as CAS as I will ever get!  I practically had to drag myself away from it to keep from adding any more touches to it!  You would think CAS is easy, but for me...not so much!  There's still time to play along with both of these challenges and don't' forget to check out Jessica's Etsy store if you are looking to update your blog.  Also, please stop by Joyce's blog and congratulate her on her new Design Team position with CASology!

Cathy, these fish are adorable, so happy and bright! I struggle with anything CAS as well, always wanting to add just a bit more. But you handled it perfectly. Your glossy bubbles are the perfect accent!
