A whale of a happy birthday...

Hey there!

I actually got the idea for today's card while I was making my card for this past Monday's post. I had pulled out a couple sheets of old Doodlebug Seaside stickers and even though I only ended up using one of the border strips then, I really wanted to get this Orca and colorful seaweed border sticker on a card of their own. So when I pulled this cutie Mermaid Kiddo by Stampendous off my desk she had just the right look to complete the scene I had imagined. I colored her up to match the rainbow of sherbet hues in the seaweed border that I cut to different lengths and then overlapped giving her a fun hideaway to play peek-a-boo with Shamoo up there. ;)

Ok, I should really get moving... busy day ahead. Ta ta for now!
