Waving Hello.../RS#57

Good Morning and happy Tuesday! I thought for sure Spring was finally here. We've been enjoying warmer weather these last few days, but that didn't last. We are back in the 30's this morning. BLEH!!! So, to give Spring a not too subtle nudge, I made a card that is all about warm weather. This is based off the Retro Sketches #57 sketch:

And the inside:

Here is the sketch:

Except for swapping out one of the larger rectangles for a sailboat, I stuck to the sketch pretty closely. I made the white wave paper using the wave stamp in the set and three different colors of ink. The sailboat is paper pieced using bits of scrap paper. I even Googled how to tie that knot in the cord! LOL!

I hope you get to play along with this challenge, because it's a fun sketch to try! Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a fabulous day!
