Who's stressed

I made this for my oldest son's birthday, (OMG he'll be 28)  its an inside joke between us and he's going to love it! The sentiment is from Art Impressions but for this card I computer generated it since I needed it to be smaller and more compact. I was a little worried when I used crystal effects on the fish bowl, there was a LOT of liquid but it came out great but more importantly didn't curl!

I've entered this into:
The Stamp Man: make it for a man
Stampin with the Dragon: all about water
Paper Crafting Journey: colour it up
Sassy Studio Designs: use something wet (crystal effects is very wet!)
Willow Sketchie challenge: animal antics
Squigglefly: make me laugh

Stamps: Squigglefly soaking kitty, stampin up crosshatch, art impressions sentiment
Paper: cajun craze, tangerine tango, ballet blue, whisper white
Ink: craft really rust
Other: prisma markers, stampin up crystal effects, epoxy dots, spellbinders, cuttlebug argyll embossing folder
