Just Keep Swimming

One of my former bosses, and a really nice guy is about to have some pretty serious surgery so I thought I'd make him a combination get well soon and chin up kind of card to help speed his recovery.  I decided rather than try to find contests to enter with cards I've made, I'd do it the other way around and see what contests are asking for then do a card to match!  Novel approach made it a bit easier.  So, I've decided to enter this card into the Cards for Men challenge this week - theme is Water.  I'm hoping that the fish swimming in a bunch of bubbles implies water!  I've also entered the Crafts and Me Challenge Blog - Under the Sea
Materials:  Stamps and Sentiment:  Ippity; Brads:  Eyeletoutlet; Glitter: Stickles; Bubble effect: Cuttlebug embossing folder; Colour by Copic
