7 or less - Challenge 2

Today I am here to start the second 7 or less challenge!

I am so sorry it has been so long since the last challenge. Unfortunantely, life, with it's ups and downs, got in the way for a while =) Anyways, I hope you will have fun with this challenge, if you choose to give it a go. I certainly hope you will! It is really challenging to limit yourself to 7 products, but it's so fun too =) 

Challenge Theme

For this challenge, you must use only 7 or less products on your card. This time I've also suggested an optional theme, thank you cards =)

So, before I tell you more details on how to enter the challenge, here’s a video I shot while making my card for this challenge:

And here is a picture of the finished card:

I am so happy with how the idea I had in my head, turned out on paper =) The whale is such a fun image! I'm not so pleased with how I wasn't able to get it completely centered on the card, though. Those kinds of things really bugs me... But I'm going to try and let it go =) Anyways, onto the information about the challenge.

I look forward to challenging myself again to use no more that 7 supplies. Maybe I'll break in my new Paper Smooches stamp set. Your card clearly shows how these adorable PS stamps deserve to take centre stage!
