The Good Life

One card, two challenges.  Now that's the way to get things done!  I liked the sketch over at CAS Colours and Sketches and I liked the theme of using stars over at The Paper Players.  And, I'm in a blue mode again and used only blue and vanilla for my Happy Whale card.  I love double-sided patterned paper.  One side had the stars and the other side was solid blue.

Stamp Set:  May 2013 Paper Pumpkin Sentiment (Stampin' Up!); Ink:  Marina Mist (Stampin' Up!); Card Stock:  Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up!), Mother Goose Patterned Paper (Graphic 45); Accessories & Tools:  Happy Whale Clearlits - retired (Stampin' Up!), Rhinestone

Here is where you can find the sketch from CAS - Colours and Sketches.

  2. I like how you used the star shape with the rhinestone to create the whale's eye - it coordinates perfectly with the designer paper. Thanks for sharing your card with us at CC&S!
