Nautical Birthday Card with Atlantic Hearts Sketch #98

Welcome back to another Joyful Stars Blog Hop!  We are a group of eleven Close To My Heart consultants who are sharing products currently available in the Annual Inspirations or Seasonal Expressions catalogs.  We hope to inspire you to create something just for the fun of it.  If you are coming from
Joyce's blog you are on the right track.

This month I was able to combine a couple of challenges with this card that I made for my son who is serving in the US Navy.  This card is 5" x 6.5" to accomodate the size of the sailboat.

Close to My Heart products used:
     White Daisy CS
     Seaside Paper 
     Pacifica CS
     Seaside Greetings stamp set
     Pacific Ink (2nd generation for the sailboat, but 1st generation for greeting)

Other products:
     Border punch by Fiskars     

Here is the Atlantic Hearts Sketch that was the inspiration for my card layout:

This was a really fun sketch to work with.  If you feel inspired to follow the sketch you can link up your creation here.

Other card challenge entries:
     Cardz 4 Guys--sailing theme
     Seize the Birthday

Now it's on to the next stop of the Joyful Stars blog hop. (If you get lost on the blog hop please go back to Joyce's blog for the complete list.)  Please go visit Nancy Brown's blog.  I'm sure she'll have something delightful to share with you.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
