Sail away with Sparks!

Good Morning! I'd like to share with you a card I made for the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge: Designer Drafts.

Here is the inside of the card:

Here is the sketch:

This sketch just reminded me so much of a sailboat so I took that idea and ran with it. (or, sailed with it!) Not only is there alot of paper piecing, but there is alot of masking too! I used stamps from 5 sets on the front of the card: seagulls from Get Outta Town; the H and U from Circle of Honor (atten-shun!); the b from Good Gab (blessings); the heart from Hubby & Wifey (I masked half the heart to create the 2 and drew the bottom with a marker); clothesline from Pip Squeaks (the stripes in the sail). I love the idea that the sentiment on the front also doubles as the registration numbers on the boat! LOL!  The inside sentiment is from Metropolis. Plus I used a bunch of paper scraps to make the boat. (Yeah, that paper scrap pile just got smaller!)

This was such a fun sketch to work with. I hope that you play along too! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
