Too Cool for School

I like to send my young grandnieces and nephews cards during the school year - and so I made these to be ready for when they go back in the fall!
I used this wonderful Swirly Waves Background stamp from Technique Junkies and the fun S'Whale stamps and die set from Ellen Hutson.  I used Ranger Distress Salty Ocean Ink for everything!
I'm linking my card to:

My theme was inspired by this card of Featured Stamper Beth over at Splitcoaststampers

Stamps:  Swirly Waves - Technique Junkies, S'whale - Ellen Hutson
Paper:  white - PTI
Ink:  Ranger Distress Salty Ocean
Accessories:  S'whale die set - Ellen Hutson, foam dots
