This card stared out to be a Father’s Day endeavor, but I took a little detour with the lacy die cut.  Then, when the pearls and beads started to look like a good idea, I began to perceive that we had moved from the Guy Card genre to something a little more feminine . . .


 . . . and if you haven’t played with Gelatos yet, you’re missing out!  For this card, I heat-embossed the Waves pattern in white, scribbled (yes, scribbled) various blue and green Gelatos over the embossing, misted with water, blended with my finger, and let dry.  I then rubbed with a paper towel to restore the white embossing.  Easy, fun, and super-quick cleanup:  what’s not to like?
