Thanks for stopping by tonight! Before I get to the card, just want to give another shout-out for the great sketch challenge over at The Paper Players. You still have time to participate and we would love to have you join us. Here's the fun sketch:
On to today's card...a masculine card for a co-worker who loves the ocean & the beach. With my new XL die Tasteful Trims in hand, I was able to make rollicking waves of Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze and Bashful Blue.
The boat is a PTI image (I don't have any SU boats!) that I stamped once in Crumb Cake and again in Daffodil Delight paper piecing the boat for a splash of color. The cloud paper is from the retired Good Neighbors hostess pack--I'm hoarding it--and the Curly Cute sentiment fits on the sky quite well. A little linen thread and a Daffodil Delight button finish it off in nautical style. I have to give a shout-out to my dear blogging friend, Christina of Sea Glass & Sentiments. She always makes fabulous beach/ocean/nautical cards so I was channeling her when I made this one! Thanks for the inspiration, Christina! And thanks to all of you for visiting and leaving me the most encouraging comments. It warms my heart to know you are out there and I am grateful for your kind words.
