AHOY little sailor!

I needed a QUICK card today and so I decided to play with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch.  I love how simple it is; perfect for today's card. I knew I wanted to head in a nautical direction to coordinate with the outfits I bought for a sweet new baby boy.






The sailboat was die cut and then paper pieced as well as a little bit of coloring.  I "frosted" the edges of the sentiment panel and the entire perimeter of the card with white ink for a little bit of extra dimension. This is a great way to add some interest without adding any bulky layers.




I sprinkled a few of my new burnished silver sequins over the top. The anchor button does just that...it "anchors" the elements together.  A piece of baker's twine wrapped twice finishes off this simple design.







I always love adding a sentiment to the inside and I especially love when the stamp set includes it, such as this one. Thanks for fluttering by!
