Sail Away Birthday


The card I have today is for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge which is to use 3 monochromatic colours (your choice) and one brown.  

I've made a masculine card using Sail Away.   I started by cutting an oval and stamping Sail Away in Night of Navy.  I used a scallop circle to sponge some clouds in Bashful Blue and waves in Marina Mist.  The sails were masked before sponging so that they remained white.  I mounted this onto Marina Mist and attached a tempting turquoise brad.  

The background is a card base of Crumb Cake with a mount of Bashful Blue then a panel of Night of Navy.  This was partially embossed with the Square Lattice folder with some twine wrapped around it.  I stamped Happy Birthday from Afterthoughts in Versamark and heat embossed it twice with Clear Embossing Powder.  

Thanks for coming along today to view my card.  Not long now till the new catalogue is available.  I still have 4 places available in my Stampers 6 which is a super way to spread the cost of all those new goodies.  You can e mail me on ails300@btinternet.com to register your place.
