WhaleOfATime School Card

Created this Back 2 School Card using a Water Theme.

Stamped a Lawn Fawn Critters of the Sea Whale & cut it out. Used memory box waves border die. Placed the whale behind the wave popped up w/ foam adhesive. Stamped Lawn Fawn Whale Spout from same stamp set. Stamped Lawn Fawn sentiment 'have whale of a time!' Stamped Docerela Creations 'Back 2 school!' sentiment. Added washi tape which I understand is allowable for ribbon challenges since it comes on a spool. Added a Sun sticker. No Bee sticker so no nickname "Sunshine HoneyBee" stickers on this card since it would not be appropriate for this card.

ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
paper: cardstock - blues
stamp: Docerela Creations - sentiment, Lawn Fawn Critters in the Sea - Whale & sentiment
