  14. How sweet, Marlene. The pearls you added made me think of my grandmother's bathroom where she had the walls decorated with blue ceramic fish and bubbles. Just for that reason, I would pick this card out of the OWH box to send home. :) I like that you chose colors that keep this card unisex, too. Thanks for sharing and sorry for my silly story!
