CQC328 and CAS179 Ahoy!

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  My card today features the sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches:

and the colors from ColourQ:

I have delayed using this cute little sailboat from Swirly Bird because it was everywhere in blogland and on Pinterest and I was just sort of "saving" it for the right time!  I thought these colors were really fun (although I did substitute more current ones) so here we go:

I started out by sponging some "clouds" on my Pool Party sky by punching out a scalloped circle and covering up the lower half with a post-it note, then sponging white ink through the upper portion (the birds were drawn with a marker):

I stamped the boat in Night of Navy, and the sails in Pear Pizzazz and Tangerine Tango, then cut them and popped them up on a "swell" of Whisper White cardstock cut with the Swirly Scribbles die.  The sentiment was made with the Labeler Alphabet....if you are fortunate enough to have the 1/4" square punch that SU used to sell, it is the perfect size to punch out these little letters!  A drop of Tombow glue and they line up so nicely! Finally I added some little banners from the retired Banner Blast and added some cute enamel accents in Night of Navy:

I just love these cheerful colors!

Enjoy your day!
