Ahoy, Matey!

Hi, everyone!

Post two of three in one day! Amazing, huh?!

The card below is for one of two current Shopping Our Stash challenges. This challenge calls for a card featuring a wood element, a wooden ship image, or both. So, what the heck... Let's do both.

Authentique original dp; SU cherry cobbler; stash brown and light blue
SU retired image in Distress Ink vintage photo on white birch
Our Daily Bread Design background stamp heat embossed in DI walnut stain
Paper Smooches ribbon, top ribbon rubbed in SU cherry cobbler
Paper Studio tiny brads; Recollections foam adhesive
I was really thrilled with the way the image stamped on the birch. Since I typically make cards for OWH, this was a new technique for me!

This is going to be a birthday card for hubby. He loves patriotic colors. And, while neither of us really are boaters, we both love beach vacations. Close enough for me -- especially since I was really stumped for a card for him this year. :)

Parting Thoughts

There is an Oh La La challenge going on at Words 2 Scrap By. Entries are being accepted until July 21... and there are a few Tim Holtz goodies up for grabs along with our standard winner's badge and Guest I-Teamer opportunity. 

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
