Fish Bowl

Hi all
I have been thinking about doing this card for a while, after playing with the gypsy at the weekend i thought i would give it a go. I have used the shadow box card as the base and the create a critter cartridge for all the cuts.

I used the water cut welded together to achieve the window cut in the card and also to cut the fish bowl in the middle thought about doing a tutorial but i have never done one before, if anyone thinks it would be useful let me know

Cant see that well on the pictures but when you pull the tabs out and in then the fish will swim

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
cup cake craft challenges- Birthdays no design papers
ginger loft challenge-  under the sea
allsorts challenge- card for a man or a boy
unstampabelles challenges- Moving Parts

Thanks for looking
