I make very few "man cards" so this was a challenge for me. I was about ready to throw in the towel and told myself to "just finish it already"! LOL I think the problem is, I don't really work with these colors a lot, so they were a bit out of my comfort zone. As you see...no pink!
The DP is from Bella BLVD and I bought it because the back of one of the sheets has the coolest crossword puzzle. I can't wait to use that for something! Meanwhile, I went for the colors.... The whale is paper pieced and I used a die for the waves. It's finished off with some Baker's Twine, a button, and a glittery star (more about that later).

Here's a close-up of the star. I applied a thick coating of Stickles, let it dry, then added more where it seemed sparse (the glitter glue "shrinks down" a bit when it's dry), then let it dry again. Let me tell you...it took forever to dry! I about cried when the kitty jumped up on my work space to look out the window; I ran over to the table and breathed a sigh of relief when I saw it sitting there unharmed. I could just see it sticking to her long white fur and me chasing her through the house to retrieve it! Not fun! LOL
All right, that's it for me today! I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend...enjoy and be safe!
