One Layer Wednesday #78 - Circles

This has to be a quickie today, Mister needs to use this computer.  I've made a little fishie card for Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge to use circles.  Of course I immediately thought of bubbles.  Lots of ways to make bubbles, but I thought of this little guy (his name is Gorbie) who has been lurking at the bottom of a bin of least-used stamps.  Bless his heart. 

I lacquered Gorbie's big kissable lips, but it doesn't show up very well in the picture.  Then I set my card stand on a bed of bubble wrap, but I think that might be trying too hard.  BTW, anyone else noticing that I mostly lean towards the whimsical? Some flowers, lots of whimsy.  I guess if you knew me, you wouldn't be surprised.   Anyhoo, here ya go!
