Whale of Blue

This card is done with the whale stamp from Pun Fun which you can get with a free star wheel during the Free Wheelin' promotion!
I love how this turned out. I used Brocade Blue cs for the base card and used Close to Cocoa Prints Designer Series paper for the bottom layer with Chocolate Chip. It is hard to see in this picture, but the main card is stamped with a stamp from the Sprinkles background set with Brocade Blue ink. I used the Cutter Kit to distress the Whale layers and sponged the edges of the White cs with Brocade Blue ink. The Twill tape is stamped with Black Stazon with the words from the stamp. And I tied a piece of Chocolate grosgrain ribbon to this. The flower is made with the 5-Petal Flower punch. Punched the brown image first, then the blue. Used dotto to tape the blue flower to a scrap piece of paper and then changed the direction of the punch to make a different flower using the same punch. To finish it all off I used a brad from the Build a Brad with a circle cut from the opposite side of the DSP.

Very nice. I like how you've roughed up the edges of the squares. Joan
