Hi everyone! It's Jocelyn on the blog today.
When I think of nautical designs, I think of navy and red, Topsiders, ropes, stripes, and Robin Williams as Popeye....not exactly feminine florals. When I made today's card, though, I went for the pink flowers and polka dots:
I started by die-cutting a hole in the center of a Webster's Pages journaling card (you can still see a bit of the lettering on the left). Then, I stamped and paper pieced the boat from the sweet new Sailmates set. Love those polka dots!
I was going to hide the bottom of the boat under the banner, but when I was playing around with the Clouds set, I realized the woodgrain looked a little like ocean swells. I have no idea why I stamped the ocean in yellow--ha ha.
Isn't that sentiment from Sailmates awesome? Danielle's sets always have the most perfect fonts and lettering.
I added Crystal Clear and Pumpkin Satin sequins at the top and stitched through them:
Thanks for stopping by!
