Sailing Away

Hello & Happy Friday!

This morning we woke up to sunshine and I hope it continues thru this holiday weekend!
As I have said in previous blog posts, we have been dealing with lots of gloomy, rainy days and with it being Memorial Day weekend, i'm hoping for some warm days with lots of sunshine!

Anyways, today I have a card to share that I made for fun.
I have always loved the Marina Mist color but have found over the last few years it was one of those colors that I rarely reached for. Today I paired it with a retired stamp called Sail Away.

Sometimes I struggle with putting together color combinations and I fall back on making monochromatic cards but I really like how the Marina Mist looks on this. Some of my stamped images I stamped off on scrap paper to give my color a lighter look!

It's Your Day Card:

Stamps: Sail Away (retired), Sunburst Sayings
Ink: Marina Mist
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Whisper White, Marina Mist 12 x 12 Paper Stack (retired)
Accessories: Circle Nestibilities, Classic Label Punch, Marina Mist 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, 2 Sided Tape

This turned out to be a great masculine card which was fun to create!


My thoughts today...

That is all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

This is beautiful and I really like that color too! I hope it's going to be a nice day for sailing this weekend, but I don't see anyone too anxious to jump into the swimming pools in this cool spring weather just yet! Enjoy your weekend!

So nicely done. I have this stamp...and I don't think I have ever used it. Thanks for the inspiration.

Perfect masculine card! Now I'm just the opposite I struggle big time with monochromatic cards but you sure rock them!
