Water Boy Birthday card (Tiddly Inks image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

How cute is this little boy from Tiddly Inks? I added some glossy accents to his goggles, arm bands and swim ring. I created the background sky using ink, sponge and a handmade cloud template. I have 2 gorgeous wave dies so I decided to incorporate them both into the scene. 

I used a sun from Flourish with a Bling store. It is part of an "Up in the sky" set.
