The Open Sea CCMC251

It's Thursday!  Time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #251 ... today it's a sketch!



I really like The Open Seas set and am so glad it didn't retire; it makes such wonderful masculine cards!  I found this handsome designer paper with a world map print in delicious colors of blues and greens in the current but retiring Fan Fair Designer Series Paper package .. layered on Very Vanilla it's perfect for my ship!   



I stamped the ship in Midnight Muse and added some subtle colors with Stampin' Write Markers and Blender Pens, cut it out and attached it to the focal rectangle with Dimensionals.



The card base is Crumb Cake.  I randomly stamped a layer of Island Indigo with the round global map, wrapped Island Indigo Bakers Twine around then attached the layer with Dimensionals.  "Happy Father's Day" was stamped in Midnight Muse onto Old Olive cardstock, punched with the Word Window Punch then attached with Dimensionals.

Here is the sketch for this week's Create with Connie and Mary  Challenge #251: 

There is so much you can do with this sketch, from masculine to feminine, kids to seniors, simple to vintage!  Why don't you try your hand at a card using this sketch, upload it somewhere on the 'net and then link it to the challenge #251 at Create with Connie and Mary this week?!  Having a sketch is such a great starting point for making a card!!  We'll be waiting to see yours!

Thanks for visiting!!  Hope you will drop by again soon!
