Splashing by to say Hi Dolphin Card

I had a fun play with several of my new metal dies today.
I used this awesome puddles of water background die to make this card really pop.  I added a ripple effect in the water by using part of a wavy lines die at the bottom.  I used the largest rectangle from my Simon says stamp - bundle of stitched shapes to cut that all out leaving the nice stitched edge.  I added that on top of a pretty teal cardstock card front base.  The dolphin is also a die cut, I let the eye pop out and added a blue gem for the eye. I adhered the second little cut out below the eye back in place to just give it detail without a hole there (I liked it better).  I added a stitched triangle in the corner which I had printed a digi-stamp sentiment from Pink Cat Studio and cut out with the triangle die.  I colored in the water drops with a blue gel pen and I also stamped the little tiny fish in blue and green from my Mermazing stamp set.

I am entering into these fun challenges:
Simon Says Monday: Nautical
Dies R Us - Challenge #79 - Anything Goes Using Dies
Simon Says Wednesday: Add A Sentiment

Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I am up to in my craft room.

This card is both sophisticated and adorable! I love the scene that you created and how the lines are so graphic and bold, yet it's still heartwarming. I really love how clean and crisp the blue and white look. It is truly a stunning card and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
