Enjoy Life (Sail Away)


     The UPS truck was here yesterday with all my new goodies from the Summer Mini catalog.
So today’s card is a sneak peek. I use the Stamp Set Sail Away great stamp for masculine, retirement, tropical plus more sort of cards.   
For this card I apply the colors to the CS with sponges to create a sunset. The image was stamp using Basic Black and Clear Embossing Powder. Mat into a Basic Black CS and adhere to the Elegant Eggplant Card. T o finished the card I use ribbon, brads and a sentiment.
