Sweet Sunday......Oh Whale


Happy Sunday Peeps!!!


Here is our Sweet Sketch, designed by yours truly:


I have had this card rolling around in my head for awhile now,, and even tho I planned it out in my head, it took alot longer than it should have to make, blame it on the exhaustion. I at one point had it almost all together and realized all my hearts on the three BG panels were upside down....UGH...had to take it all apart!!
Anyway.....
I am using some new items from Stampin Up's Spring Mini.
 I love the new set called "Oh Whale" and the matching Clearlit Die. 
I die cut the whale out using some Pool Party card stock and then embossed him with the square
lattice EF. I used my circle and scallop circle nesties for the center element. I stamped the hearts with some Primrose Petals ink and then added the whale with a few dimensionals.
 I added a basic pearl to the whale for his eye. 


The base of the card is some Confetti Cream card stock and then the next layer is Primrose Petals. The DSP is from the More Amore Specialty pack.
I added some Pool Party ribbon and button which is from the SAB Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack
I stamped the sentiment, which is from the Oh Whale set, (it has the cutest sentiments to go along with the whale theme) with black stazon onto some more of the confetti cream card stock and flagged the end and curled it a bit. and added it to the card. 

Be sure and check out what the rest of the team has made with this sweet sketch:

Thanks for stopping by today and 
HAPPY STAMPING!!
