Whaley Good

The second card I made today (before watching 3 episodes of Downton Abbey), is a water-themed card for these challenges:

Heart 2 Heart - water, water everywhere
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
The Pink Elephant Challenge - Monochromatic Colors

My monochromatic colors on this card are Lilac Mist, Heavenly Blue (both retired), and Outdoor Denim. The sentiment says "Have a Whaley good time." I used my "tiny bubbles" embossing folder, stamped the sand dollar on the canvas button, and trimmed my milepost star to look like a starfish to add to the oceany feel of the card. I had so much fun with that!

Materials used:
Cardstock: Lilac Mist, Heavenly Blue, White Daisy, Outdoor Denim
Stamps: Under the Sea, Footloose WOTG
Ink: Lilac Mist
Other: Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon, Canvas Badge Buttons, Milepost Shapes, Prisma Glitter
