I love the sketch that Technostamper has up for the Challenge this week!  Those circles intrigued me!



So here is my card using Stampin' Up!'s Sail Away!



I started with a base of Marina Mist cardstock and layered on Night of Navy.  I ran Crumb Cake cardstock thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder and added the diagonal strip print from Nautical Expedition to the bottom.  The focal Sail Away image is stamped with Night of Navy on Whisper White.  I added some Marina Mist clouds in the sky and darker color for the sea.  I layered the Whisper White on Night of Navy and placed it with Stampin' Dimensionals. 


I used the Tasteful Trim XL Die and cut the ropey looking one from Marina Mist cardstock.  I added two Vintage Trinket Brads on each side.  Then I used the Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and wrapped it around in between the scallops.  I stamped Just for You from Teeny Tiny Wishes with Night of Navy on Whisper White and cut it to 1" square…I used the ledge stamp from The Open Seas with Crumb Cake in the background for some added texture.  Then I layered it on Cherry Cobbler Postage punch.  I stamped the anchor in Cherry Cobbler and cut it out, placed it with Stampin' Dimensions on the front by the greeting.


This stamp just makes it easy to make cards!  Love it!

That was such a brilliant idea to use the tasteful trim die for the circles. I love the baker's twine twisted around it.  Fabulous card.  Thanks so much for playing along again this week!

I can't believe it!  That sizzix trim was the very thing I thought of when I saw this sketch.  Your card is wonderful!

Wonderful card, Connie!   Wish I had the Tasteful Trim die to make the rope effect…and most of all I love your sky!
