Boy's Day (a Japanese celebration) is quickly arriving (May 5th, the fifth day of the fifth month). I decided that I should at least design one card for the occasion since I have two boys. Maybe I'll do treat boxes later. Anyway I was inspired by the Dandelion Designs cute Boy's Day stamps. I was trying to find a way to make the fish flutter like the real cloth ones do when hung from a pole outside the house to indicate how many boys/men reside in the home. I finally gave up and just used mizuhiki cording and pop-dots to suggest movement. I'll keep thinking about another card design which will do what I imagine, maybe something will just come to me while I daydream.
