A FINtastic Birthday Card

I have a birthday party for a 2-year-old to go to this afternoon.  Part of his gift is a shirt with a shark on it, so I thought I'd make a card to match.  I like punny cards, but couldn't think of any shark ones.  A quick Google image search resulted in a FINtastic pun :)  Since the birthday boy is only 2, I thought a simple card would be fine.  I cut out the shark from Life's a Beach.  The dark gray layer on the cartridge is actually a thin border that gets glued on top of the lighter layer.  That sounded like a bit of a hassle to glue, and probably a frustration to cut out, so I modified it on my Gypsy so it was like a shadow layer.  I wish I had a water waves embossing folder, but I thought Chevron was close.  Unfortunately, I didn't plan that out ahead, and the "waves" go the wrong direction!

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
