Sailing by to say hi!

Good Morning bloggy friends! 
I needed a card for my son to mail out, so I thought I would pull out some of my My Creative Time products and use the new Designers Challenge as inspiration. 

For my card, I started with a light blue A2 card base and added a layer of kraft cardstock that I stamped the Stripey Background in Chipped Sapphire Ink to a piece of  Cosmo Cricket patterned paper. I distressed the edges before adhering to the card base. I took a length of ribbon and wrapped it around the card front and  tied it off at the end with twine and a Prima decorative wood button.

Using the Lost at Sea stamp set and dies, I created another porthole scene card. You may remember, I made one a few weeks ago, and it was so much fun to make. I added an anchor from Anchors & Heart.  The sentiment was stamped on one of the Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  So there you have it. Below is the challenge inspiration.
The challenge is to either use the boat or the colors or both as your inspiration.
I am also sharing at Craftin' Desert Divas - Summer Challenge, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Sugar Pea Designs - Anything Goes.

So happy you popped by today! Hope you have a Fantastic Friday!

An awesome card Tammy.The papers are perfect for the card and the Cicles with the spot in the middle are reminiscent of naval signal flags. Nice touch.
