Happy Columbus Day

Good Morning!  Hope you all can enjoy this Holiday and spend time doing what you love.  I have to work, but that's okay.....I guess.

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge at Reverse ConfettiOctober Sketch, and the Simon Says Monday, Challenge O.....Oh how I do love the Ocean!!!

I love the clean look to this Sketch, maybe you do too.

I bought my first stamp set from Reverse Confetti a couple of weeks ago and I FINALLY had some time to get it inky.  It's a super cute ocean themed set, surprise, surprise.  So I thought it was a perfect card and stamp set to showcase on this Columbus Day!  :)

Just look at all of those fabulous harbor related stamps, 14 in all.
And here is my card:

Super cute, right?  I stamped the Braided Rope 3 times on the bottom panel.  The Compass Rose was stamped on white card stock with dark blue ink and layered on a deep red card stock, using Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Circle dies.  I ran the flag banner through my CuttleBug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  Stamping the Anchor Border twice in a light blue ink on my sentiment panel and then over stamping the sentiment, shore do love you, in deep red.....I LOVE that sentiment!  The Designer Paper is Sea Glass from K & Company, layered on white card stock and both panels popped up using a bazllion 3D adhesive dots.  Then I simply wrapped the whole thing in Baker's Twine with a knot.  I also stamped the Anchor Border on the inside of the card as well as the Flag Banner, to finish it off.

I think I have a lot of ideas for this fabulous set!  Stayed Tuned....Wink, Wink!
Hope you all have a wonderful day, whatever you do!
