At the Aquarium....From Land to Sea

Where do you get inspiration for your card making?  I never know where mine is going to come from or where those odd ideas come from.  Guess it is best just not to question it!  I was given the assignment for a male birthday card for a workshop.  Hmm, something unexpected I think.  What about an aquarium?  Can I make it look like we have taken a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium?  What do you think - did I pull it off?  At least a little bit?

The card actually folds flat but then becomes a 4 1/4"x5" card with a 1/2" between the front where Happy Birthday is embossed in Iridescent Ice embossing powder on the window sheet to the back where I stamped the coral in Early Espresso ink.  All of the wildlife and lighthouse were stamped on Whisper White and then cut out.

Since this card does not open, I placed a piece of Whisper White cardstock on the back of the card with the Birthday Blossoms sentiment and the adorable turtle.
