Birthday card idea for a Pisces

As I mentioned in my last post, this year I have decided to use more of what I already have, rather than buying new. This card is an example of that. I was wondering what to use on a card for my cousin's upcoming March birthday and as he's a Pisces that reminded me of this Pisces stamp, which made me think of fish, which made me think of these starfish embellishments, which made me think of the paper. I've had a little box of these embellishments for a while now and never used a one. Ditto for the paper. I'm glad to finally use them.

The Pisces digital stamp and sentiment are from Digital Delights. I've got all the zodiac stamps from Digital Delights, but have so far only used the Pisces, Taurus and Capricorn ones. These work well for everyone; completely gender neutral! On the first Pisces card I colored my stamp in muted grays and blues, but this time went brighter to match the paper. If you're curious, here are the Taurus and Capricorn cards.

The paper is Echo Park Under the Sea Happy Starfish. The card base was created with Crafts-too Presscut Step Card die (one of my old favorites).
