We're Gonna Need A Bigger... Cake!

Just a quick share today inspired by a couple of challenges. This is actually a re-make of a card that I made a while back but never shared on my blog - it is a great masculine Birthday card - and I can never have too many of those!

The wave was created by smooshing some Tumbled Glass and Broken China onto a piece of Distress watercolour paper - drying between the layers. I added some white splatters as well with Studio Calico white mist. The shark (from Avery Elle) was coloured with Copics, coated with Wink of Stella, and popped up with a mini action wobbler. The greeting is from the same Avery Elle stamp set - here is how it is completed on the inside of the card:

I will link up to the following challenges:
