The Open Sea



 It was a beautiful day off...got more flowers planted, picked up a flat of fresh, local strawberries (pretty much at the end of the season for us), did a mountain of laundry, ate supper out with our middle son, and managed to squeeze in some inky time to make this card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge (use colors - navy, light blue and red) and for the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge. I tweaked the circle placement a bit so I wouldn't cover up the red burlap border so much.


STAMPS:The Open Sea by SU
PAPER: Night of Navy, White, SU DP from a 6x6" pack
INK: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue
ACCESSORIES:  Large dotted EF, Large flag die by Lil Inker Designs (each side trimmed by 1/8"), Circle Nesties, Baker's twine, Anchor charm (Michael's-in jewelry section), Star brads, Burlap trim from Funkie Junkie.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
