Yes, I know whales are mammals

I just know the child who receives this card will quickly point out that whales are not fish.  There are a lot of very intelligent children in my family!  Anyway, I just had to use the "birthday fishes" stamp from Papertrey Ink when I decided to do this card.  The face stamps are of course Peachy Keen.

The whale and starfish are both from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge.  The papers are a mixture of things that were in my scrap box.  Don't you just love it when you can do entire cards without cutting into a fresh sheet of paper?  Kinda' feels like getting something for nothing....and I love that.

 I added Glossy Accents to the eyes of both critters and to the water coming out of the whale's blow hole.  To make it easier to do the Glossy Accents on the whale's spray and to be able to ink around his entire head, I first cut the water off.  Then just glued it on the mat before adding the whale.  A few little brads complete the card.
