Sailboat - Celebrate - It's Your Day

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a sailboat card.  I inked the background with Distress Inks, spritzed with water, and then stamped the sailboat and seagulls.  The sentiment was white heat-embossed on a black scrap. This card will be going into the mail to one of my brothers. I hope he likes it!


Distress Inks:  Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire

Again I'm joining the STAMPlorations 5th birthday celebration! I feel sad that the celebration has ended, but there is still one more day left to link up your projects!


The STAMPlorations birthday challenge is to CASE the STAMPgirls. Although I did not use any STAMPlorations products on this card, I was inspired by the nautical theme of STAMPgirl Monica's card:
