Freshly Made Sketches #86 and The Kraft Journal: Red, White or Blue

Happy Saturday!

I'm here to share with you a card I created last night.  I'm using the fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the colors from The Kraft Journal.  We were asked to use Red, White or Blue.  I incorporated the colors red and blue for my card.

My card:

The base of the card is Night of Navy, followed by Crumb Cake, which I embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder.  The images are from SU! The Open Sea Stamp Set.  I used Crumb Cake, Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler ink for all three images.  I wanted to make a Father's Day card for my dad, and since he loves sailboats, I thought this was perfect for him.  I wrappd some MS red Bakers Twine in the middle and tied the anchor instead of a bow.  The sentiment is from Best Dad Ever Stamp Set and is stamped with Crumb Cake ink.  Because this is a masculine card, I simply added 2 gold eyelets to the sentiment. 

Thanks for stopping by,
