Whales and umbrellas :)

Hello! So I've had this card idea in my head for a while, pretty much since I saw the Partly Cloudy and Critters in the Sea sets. I knew they had to go together! The idea of a whale holding an umbrella just makes me laugh! I did a bunch of heat embossing for this card inspired by the Caardvarks challenge.
I stamped the wave edge from the Critters in the Sea set in Versamark, clear heat embossed and cut around it on this cool American Crafts Abode paper. I also clear heat embossed some peony pigment ink for the umbrella. I punched the bottom of the card to look like waves with the upper crest Fiskars border punch.

I hope you guys have a fantastic day!
