Whale Shower and an update

Hello everyone! I have a little update on the blog. I changed my blog name to Sootywing Studios. I've been wanting to change the name of this for a while and I've been going through several different names. I ended up with this one, Sootywing, because it's kind of a play on my married last name. My last name is Sootkoos and as I was searching for names, I came across a type of butterfly that is called a Sootywing. So I kind of liked it and thought that it was a different name. Also, since I've been doing more invitations for clients, I would like to have some kind of name to go by. Hopefully soon I will get a website going with all of the invitation designs I offer. In the meantime, I will just post them to my blog and facebook page.

So today's card is a card that I made for a baby shower that I went to over the weekend. I wanted to use the cute whale from Oh Whale! I made my own chevron background using one of the images from Border Banter, which I stamped in Daffodil Delight. I also used the chevron embossing folder on the gray cardstock. Can't get enough of those chevrons! I stamped the whale in Perfect Plum and cut it out with the Happy Whale die. Then I added the Perfect Plum ribbon, the sentiment and some rhinestones. Thanks for stopping by!
