Ocean Breezes ...

Really sounds good right about now!  LOL!

Hello my friends!
I'm away from the cave today ... dentist appointment and visiting with Mom
over in Pennsylvania.  But, before heading out I wanted to share
a card with you that I created the other day for a few challenges that caught my eye!

The image for today's card was found online and the background paper is from the Inspired by Stamping Blog.  I did a little fussy cutting around the 'doily' and slipped my image behind.  The little nautical die cuts are from the Frantic Stamper 'Nautical Icons' die set and were cut from kraft card stock.  A touch of faux stitching with my white Gelly Roll pen and this masculine creation is ready for the mail!

The challenges I'd like to enter into today are:
Creative Colors Challenge #38photo inspiration

use ocean blue, white and Kraft and 
work around the theme ocean, maritime, summer
Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge - Something beginning with B  (color Blue)
Allsorts Challenge #317 - Blue as the Ocean

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Now I'd better get on the road!
Have a great day!
As always . . .
