You Float My Boat

Hello everyone!!!
Hope you have been having a fabulous week!
I know I am glad it is Wednesday for 2 reasons. One it means this work week is almost over and second it means it is time for another  Anything Goes Challenge here at 7Kids!
We had some great entries last time! SO many talented people out there!

I wanted to share a card I made featuring the fun stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn called Float My Boat.  Both are available at the 7Kids store.

I followed this fantastic sketch from

The papers from CartaBella-Beach Boardwalk 6X6 pad were perfect for my card. If you look closely, you can see how I took a craft knife and cut out areas in the wavy paper to place the little sailboats in. Don't they look like they are floating in the ocean?  I stamped the sailboats with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with Black embossing powder. I stamped them again on different scraps of designer paper. I fussy cut the sails and paper pieced them onto the embossed sailboats. I think they are so cute!

I hope you will join us here at 7KidsAnything Goes Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

Ink: Versamark
Embossing Powder: Black Super Fine (Ranger)
