You're a Life Saver!

***This card was chosen as one of the Favorites at CAS(E) this Sketch!!! ***

Hello crafty people!!!
Hope you are having good weekend!
I wanted to share a card that I made for a guy friend who helped us out with some stuff here at my house. So...I wanted to keep it masculine and CAS.

This is my card:


I followed the current sketch at 


My card is more square than rectangle. Oops!!!!

I used my new adorable stamp set and matching dies by Lawn Fawn called Float My Boat.
The sails on the little boats were paper pieced with some scraps from the Beach Boardwalk (Carta Bella) 6x6 paper pad.. And all of the stamping was done with Versamark or VersamarkFine black ink, because I heat embossed everything. 
How do you like the little life saver? I punched holes with my Crop-A-Dile and threaded some twine thru them. Does it look like rope???

I think the card turned out really cute. I just hope not too cute for a grown man!


Thanks for stopping by!
Mackie
