Wh-eally great card

Hello everyone!
Good morning!
Hope you all are having a great weekend.
 After a short break I am back................(lol)!!! I went for a trip to Pondicherry and Chennai! My daughter has completed her B.A. Economics and applied for M.A. Economics at Madras school of economics. She got an admission there, so we celebrated this occasion at Pondicherry!!! It's a beautiful place with lush greenery and Beaches. Here are some pics to share with you, Hope you enjoyed them!!!





Now back to my craft place..... This time I followed a sketch at Viva La Verve blog and photo inspiration.
And also followed Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge 1st Anniversary!
 
I purchased some new stamps, dies, ribbons, papers etc. and thought I would put them to some good use and play along with some new challenges. So here is the take on the sketch.....
The papers are from DCWV and the turquoise blue sheet is from Mariposa and I embossed it. I used a new sparkling sheet from a local store and made a border.

The cute whale image is from a new stamp set called " Sweet Baby " from Itsy Bitsy and I heat embossed it using Wow embossing powders and for a real look , I added  googly eye on it. I die cut an octagon shape from a pearlescent lime green CS and adhered it on sky blue CS. The sentiment stamp is from Sizzix Framelits with lovely 20 stamps. I have also added  new transparent coloured beads at the transparent textured banner sheet with a baker twine. I added some false stitch all around the blue sheet using Potentate black pen.
 
I am really happy after finishing this card with my favorite shades of blue:) and  reminding me of the blue sea on our most enjoyable trip!!!
Supplies used:
Swirls embossing folder from Itsy Bitsy
Spellbinder Shapeabilities Asian Accents
 Spellbinder Nestabilities large scalloped Octagons
Wow Opaque bright White, Primary Ebony, Opaque Primary Azure, Nice Ice Blue glittered Embossing Powders
Turquoise Stickle from Ranger
 
I entered my card into following challenges too:

She's really pretty (reminds me of Lucille Ball!) and I love that you made her fire colored to contrast with the blue water.
