A Calico Whale Card

Hello!  It's a snowy Monday here in Northern Virginia and we managed to get the day off of school!  :)  My girls are happily in their jammies playing with Perler beads.  Thanks to Pinterest, they have found so many fun patterns for them lately!

While they are busy, I thought I'd share a card!  I made this one using the Critters Under the Sea set by Lawn Fawn:

I thought it would be fun to stamp this little guy onto some patterned paper and cut him out.  This paper is from the 6x6 pad of We R Memory Keepers Simply Spring line.  I stamped the sentiment, waves and his water spout with Midnight Muse ink from Stampin' Up and then added some white and navy ink splatters.  I used pop dots to add my whale to the scene.  Lastly, I embellished the top left corner with a little gray washi from My Mind's Eye and some epoxy dots from Teresa Collins.

I'm happy with how this little card turned out!  To tell you the truth, I had made a whole other card with this little whale- a CAS number that I hated!  I threw it away before I went to bed and when I woke up the next day, I pulled it out of the trash and took the whale off... it wasn't his fault! :)  I'm glad I saved him!

Well, hope you enjoy your day!  I'll be getting crafty with my girls for the most part so I will definitely be enjoying mine!
