FMS396 Vintage Nautical

Happy Friday, peeps!  Wow, what a day we had yesterday....I was driving home from dropping Cassidy off and it was raining insanely!!  Scary stuff!  Hopefully today will be better!  Anyway, late last night I crept into my craft room to make a card with Linda's FMS sketch:
I really liked the vintage sailing print in the Come Sail Away DSP's interesting enough to not need a lot of embellishments, which made it great for the sketch!  So here we go:

I used the little rope die from the Smooth Sailing dies to cut my borders from Soft Suede cardstock, pieced them together and glued them on top of the DSP.  I stamped a sentiment in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it out with the stitched label die from the same set. I thought it looked a little "naked", so I cut another die from SS, cut it in half and layered it underneath! The final touch was some retired candy dots.  

I stamped a birthday sentiment from Picture Perfect Birthday on the inside, along with the lighthouse, stamped in Sahara Sand:

These make such great masculine cards!  So happy you popped in today!

We got to meet Ginger a few days ago; Cassidy carries her around everywhere, and even put her on the swing!  And she must have liked it, she didn't jump off!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Really cool card with a a great design, LeAnne! I love that DSP and almost used it yesterday! Aww, looks like Ginger is doing well in her new home. The rain yesterday was crazy! Here in York County we didn't get as much but Shawn was on his way home from work and there were roads flooded everywhere! He said many times he almost pulled over until it stopped. Never seen it rain that hard & fast! I was never so happy to see him get home safely! Mother Nature must have been in one of those moods! LOL

LOVE it! I saw that sketch and immediately thought of washi tape but the rope idea is perfect. Do Ginger and Eden get along? They must look like Mutt and Jeff together.
