Whalecome Baby!
I'm a huge fan of designer paper because it makes creating soooooo much easier!  This card is a great example of that.  Here I went a step further and ran the top half of through the new Cloudy Day embossing folder to give the printed clouds even more texture.  Since Stampin' Up!'s designer paper is double-sided, it's easy to find a coordinating piece that has a simpler pattern...just flip it over! I added Dazzling Details to the whale eye and to the water spout to give the card a little sparkle. I also combined words to make this sentiment.
