Just Keep Smiling....

Hello everyone, we recently saw "Finding Dory" and I was totally enchanted and inspired by this movie and created a card using elements from Eyelet Outlet and from a "Avery Elle" stamp set.


I stamped the whale, cut him out and colored him with my Copic Markers. For the glittery frame I used strips of dark blue glitter washi tape on a piece of scrap card stock.  I created the piers by hand cutting brown paper and then drawing on the wood grain. As added embellishments, I used the Seagull Brads, and the Spring Bubble brads that say "Keep Smiling" (which reminded me of the saying that Dori would often say "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...") and then added Clear Swirl Bling as the water spout from the whale all from Eyelet Outlet.


 As a fun, interesting and creative way to make the ocean waves I took some left over blue ribbon and looped it around and stuck it down with double sided tape!  Easy.  I hope you like my "Finding Dory" inspired card that reminds us to just keep smiling.  Thank you for finding me today and remember to just keep swimming, just keep swimming...
