Set Sail

My son, his wife, and little munchkin (2 yrs. old) are visiting from Georgia and have been here since last Friday. What a treat to get to play with the little one. Hate to see them leave Tuesday a.m. but I'll see them again at Easter. While they were visiting friends, I managed to get a card made.

I've made my card for Case Study Challenge Blog #31. What some great inspiration from their Guest Designer this month, Julee Tilman. I love her colorful, upbeat, summery creation. I was inspired by the dots as they are one of my favorite paper designs. And, how cute are those sailboats she used.

I decided to use my large sailboat, popping up my smaller one. Added a yellow ribbon, seahorse charm, and a sunshine I stamped, cut out, and popped. I like the hot, summery feel of this card.

I am entering my card into  the Paper Cutz Challenge #83-Your Choice-any colors/theme

Stamps: Sailboat (unknown), Art Impression for sun
Paper: PTI white cardstock, Making Memories Scrapbook pad (for matching papers), Stampin'Up! Night of Navy
Ink: Stampin'Up! Night of Navy
