Well, it only took me a month to make this card. Seriously. I was playing with patterned paper and realized that this particular pattern looked like waves. Since I had recently purchased a used By the Sea stamp set, I immediately thought of this adorable whale. I cut a slit in the paper so it looked like it was in the water. Then I added the cruise ship in the background and there I stopped. I didn't know what else to do with it!
Yesterday, determined to finish it, I finally just picked the "cruising by" sentiment and stamped it on a banner diecut. Like a previous card, I bent the banner to give the illusion of wind and then added it to the card in the empty space. Not perfect, but I'm calling it done!
