Yet another Sailboat for Father's Day

So, today, my Sailboat fascination continues. I'm having so much fun making sailboat cards - the Mojo card from yesterday's post and for Kristina's Challenge last week that I thought I'd make another one - slightly different layout, but with most of the same components. This time, I went with a Baja Breeze/Kiwi Kiss/Pacific Point/Tangerine Tango combination (lots of In Colors!), with a hint of Basic Gray. If you've noticed on my posts from the last few weeks, I have been going to town with my sponge daubers! I really do love those things and have just ordered some more! I used it to create my ocean and I love the effect it gives - sort of an effervescent feel that captures the "wave" sensation. At least, I think so! ;) The background on the Baja Breeze cardstock is the Small Dots Texturz embossing plate, and the sail on the boat is from my small scraps of Parisian Breeze Designer Series Paper.

Just like yesterday's card, I tied some of rope twine (from the Winter Mini catalog) around the striped grosgrain ribbon and added the jumbo grommet to make my "guyish" ribbon treatment. I think it's a fun nautical sort of look :)

Hope you like it! Have a great day. Bye for now :)

Love your sailboat and especially the knot through the grommet! Perfect! Thanks for the freebie friday matchbox-super cute and even more so in person! no worries about a "proper" card :) I'm just excited to have won another Rosemarie Original! ;)
Have a great day!

The knot and grommet is perfect, a little life preserver. What a great card.
