I Whaley Like You!

Ahoy there!
Well,snow isn't quite what I was expecting this close to Spring :-/ 
Today's card is made with one of my favourite sets from my favourite companies,although with this weather,maybe I should have used the penguin instead of the whale!
 I have some new Washi tape and immediately thought of this set I had lurking and started thinking nautical thoughts.
I started by wrapping three sets of Washi,in the colours I wanted to stamp the card in,keeping in nautical with blues and reds,and a bit of mustard (can't beat a bit of mustard ;-)) Then,I used the awesomely useful rounded rectangle stacker dies to cut out a frame,stamping the Bitty Buddies frame onto it (it fits pretty much perfectly-score!) I used the Avery Elle Fanfare set to make some waves for the whale,and fussy cut them. I stamped the gorgeous little whale and his water jet onto a piece of card,used the smallest rounded rectangle die for my sentiment and added another heart underneath. I used Stickles on the hearts,then when they were dry,put a bit of Glossy Accents to make the super shiny. After framing the whale and adding the sentiment,I put pop dots on the frame to make it stand out from the Washi background and added two little rope bows from the Lawn Fawn Triple Twine set which complimented and completed the look. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bitty Buddy set,it's so versatile and not just for Valentines Day. It has matching dies too (always a bonus). 
I hope you like it,it was made with a very special person in mind  :-)
