Dolphin Father's Day Card

Created this Father's Day card using BugABoo digi, Dolphin, on the right. Used a sketch which you can see below. Embossed the Water Waves pattern paper. Used Tim Holtz paper distresser on the edges of the Water Waves pattern paper. Used Cricut cartridge Splish Splash for Dolphin on left. Some may not know that WalMart use to have exclusive Cricut cartridges that were labeled Cricut Lite cartridges such as Splish Splash. WalMart no longer sells Cricut stuff in any of the stores in my area here in Central TX. I got several of them on clearance at WalMart both in the stores & online. Hubby also bought me a few when he would ask what I wanted for a birthday gift. Stamped Stampin' Up sentiment on Dolphin on left. Used Kraft cardstock for base. Added ribbon.
