Have a WHALE of a Time!!!

Honestly, I think that should DEFINITELY be the idea on your birthday - to have a whale of a time!  =)  Anyhow, that was the inspiration for this Lawn-Fawny creation today!  Here's my card:

This is one of my absolute favorite cards I've made in awhile!  I love the colors, and I love getting to use Critters in the Sea - which I haven't really put to good use for a long time and it's one of my favorite Lawn Fawn stamp sets!  =) 

I started by punching the edge and cutting out the seahorses and whale.  Then I used Tumbled Glass distress ink on the paper just to add a little extra coloring. Then I stamped the spouted water and sentiment onto the green cardstock, adhered down the embroidery floss and then the whale.  Then, I adhered the punched blue piece and the seahorses.  I then added the bubble stamps around the seahorses!  I finished the whole thing off with a few pearls (which you should know by now are one of my favorite embellishments) and some glossy accents to the bubbles (doesn't that make them look fun?!?!) and there you have it!  =) 

This card was inspired by three different challenges:
1. Lawnscapings #12 - a fabulous sketch (shown below) 
2. CAS-ual Fridays #8: Getting Edgy - I used my favorite border punch and the seahorses to create a CAS but funky edge to this card! 
3. CR84FN #32 - Use Aqua, Yellow, and Green as your main card colors
Wow I posted twice in the same day!  =)  It's been a long time since I've done that, but I'm feeling really great about all of the fun, crafty creations I've had time for lately!  =)  I'll be back with some more fabulous fun tomorrow!
