Whale of a Time - Amuse Style

So did you all go and check out the Studio Stampers blog yet? If you haven't you might want to do so. I'm this weeks "Featured Stamper" and there is a PRIZE up for grabs.

Here is my card for the Challenge:

I just love that adorable little Whale and had such a fun time creating the card. I had an idea pop into my head as I was falling asleep one night and got up the next morning and drew out a very "rough" sketch. Then my daughter showed me how to use a program on our computer so I was able to draw up a better sketch using my idea.

Here is my sketch:
You'll have 2 weeks to enter the challenge but you must post your card on the Studio Stamper's blog to be eligible to win the prize. Try to use atleast 1 Amuse Stamp on your card. I'm offering up one Package of the Sky Blue Grosgrain Ribbon used on the Whale card and one Package of Buttercup Buttons used on the previous day's Snail card.

Here's a close-up of the seaweed and fish (so fun)

So get creating if you'd like a chance to win those items.
