Playing the Odds 365 Cards Challenge

Hi Everyone!

I am submitting today's card to the "Playing the Odds" challenge from 365 Cards.  The purpose of this challenge is to "create a card that has an odd number of each type of element.  You can use as little or as much as you want of anything, as long as it adds up to an odd number".

I found a piece of patterned paper in my stash that reminds me of ocean waves.  I used some paper punches to punch sea creatures in that patterned paper and then I adhered the paper to a blank card.  I used scraps from my stash to punch each of the sea creatures again.  I adhered them to my card with foam tape and tried to create a shadowed effect. 

You can see that I have
1 sea star
1 crab
3 fish
7 sea horses

There are 3 heart shaped fins on the 3 fish and they each have one wiggly eye for a total of 3.  They are each blowing 3 blue rhinestone air bubbles for a total of 9.  The 7 sea horses each have a tiny blue rhinestone eye and the 1 crab has 2 tiny blue rhinestone eyes which makes a total of 9 tiny blue rhinestones. 

And that's my card for this challenge!

Have a nice night.
