Challenge Card

So last night I made a card that fits into a few different challenges.

The requirements:
Create a Critter, has to have a critter and something cut with the Cricut - I do not own Create A Critter (thow it is top on my list to get.. *sigh*) so I cut the whale from a file for Sure Cuts A Lot.
Make It Sparkle, has to have glitter, lots of glitter - that was easy.. there's glitter on the water coming from the whales blow hole, on the waves at the bottom, and "Get WHALE Soon!" is all glitter!
Blue & Green, has to be blue & green - as you can see.. this card is almost completely blue & green!
Anything goes, well that ones pretty obvious

Recollections Cape Cod cardstock - the background and the whale are both made of this.
Sparkle ribbon - I cut it jagged to look like sea weed
Dark blue tissue paper - I tore this and squished it a bit to make a wave effect
Dark blue glitter glue - I used this to add some glitter to the waves and the water from the blow hole
Scribbles paint - I painted "Get WHALE Soon!" with silver and blue, and also used green and blue and smudged it all over the background to give it a feel off different lights and some blue on the water from the blow hole
foam double sided tape - this was used to pop the whale from the background
wiggle eye - used for the whales eye
Zig glue - used to glue down everything else

Thanks for taking a look! Have a great day!
