Peachy Keen Challenge # 26

Hello and happy PeachyKeenChallenge day! The challenge is to create a card using all the items/colors/methods listed below

-Stitching {either hand drawn or by needle}
-White and Orange {card can have more colors}
-Contain one "up-cycled item" {something that could be thrown away}
-Any Peachy Keen Stamp

For my card, I used sticker packaging that looked like this...

And turned it into this....
A FISH TANK!!! ;o) I love thinking outside the box/packaging! LOL The super cute puffer fish is from the Under The Sea stamp set and the adorable little starfish is from the Sea Animals and Creatures stamp set. The thought "bubble" is from the Cute Kitties stamp set. Here is a side view to see the tanks dimension...I was even able to add pop dots to my lil' creatures!
To "fin"ish {get it?! HA} off my card I did some hand stitching with orange embroidery floss...and some faux stitching with my Sakura Gelly Roll opaque white pen which can also be purchased at PeachyKeenStamps.com HERE 

Please swim over to the Challenge Blog and play along with us! This challenge will not be judged a random winner will be chosen. The prize this time is the BRAND SPANKING NEW.........Happy Bird and Phrases stamp set!!!
