Get "Whale" Wishes

Ooo . . . doesn't this cute little whale make you smile!?  My brother broke his finger and had to have surgery to fix it this past week.  I'm going to send him these "Get 'Whale' Soon" wishes.
I used a circles impressibilities to create bubbles on the background.  And I used a circle border die to cut the waves, once out of cardstock and once out of vellum.

Challenges:
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Wonderful Wednesday--anything goes
Inspiration Destination #36--anything goes
Inky Impressions #212--Make it for a Man
Addicted to Stamps #147--Make Your Mark (I used ink, a gray marker to shade the whale, chalk and an impression plate to create marks in the background)
Craftin By Designs--anything goes for June
Word Art Wednesday #186--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Tuesday Throwdown #247--out to sea
Chalk 'n' Stock--anything goes as long as you use chalk (I used chalk to color his cheek and to lighten his belly)
Paper Girls #81--Father's Day/Masculine
YNS #15--sketch
YNSSketch-15

Supplies:
YNS "Sea Creatures Set One" and "Sea Creature Sentiments"
Dies: MFT "Designer Labels 4 STAX", "Blueprints 13" stitched layer and "Western Circle Star Border Duo" for waves; Spellbinders "Circles" impressibilities
