This card is a simple nautical card using the sailboat stamp from the Moving Along set. I decided to keep the colors simple and used two of the new In Colors--Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple. The Midnight Muse card stock is textured with the polka dot textured impressions folder to match the dots along the top of the sailboat. I love the patterns designer series paper stacks and just got my new stack for the In Colors, so I used a bit of the Raspberry Ripple and punched the edge with the scallop edge punch. The greeting is from the same stamp set and is punched out with the word window punch. Finally I tied a piece of the new white stitched grosgrain. The layout for this card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #38 go here for the challenge. This is the first time I've done one of these challenges and I'm excited to try out more. I love how quickly I was able to put this card together with the sketch inspiration. Go ahead, give a challenge a try!
