Dynamic Duos #1 and A La Card Monkey 107: Anything Goes + Sketch

Hello, blogger friends!  This evening I decided to combine two challenges into one card, and both challenges were ones I've never done before.  The Dynamic Duos is a new challenge to be done with two colors:  pool party and lucky limeade.  The other challenge is from A La Card Monkey: It's Anything Goes + Sketch, Monkey 107.  I'm still working on sample birth announcements and now thank you cards for my newest grandchild who will be born next month.  The theme is whales, and we want something that will be easy to mass produce.  I added ribbon, but left out the bow so it wouldn't be too girly, since the baby is a boy.  I used the little whale image in Fox and Friends.  I did some embossing with a cuttlebug folder and used my punches.  I think it turned out pretty cute!  

Thanks for stopping by!
