Here is my card for Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge #22 . It is a layout based on Leslie's sketch HERE. I started out wanting to use the lighthouse image. Because this is a "stamp simply" challenge, I decided to simply add a little bit of color using my Stampin' Up pastels. I love them since they are so easy -- fool proof in fact - and make a quick way to add a small amount of color!!
Next, I picked this dark cardstock out of my K&Co. Designer Cards pad (the ones that are pre-scored). I liked the circle images as they reminded me of compasses -- another nautical item. Then I used the lighter green designer paper across the bottom and put the whole thing on some mellow moss cardstock. I didn't want to add ribbon as it didn't fit the nautical theme, so I used some tan colored braiding cord instead. Finally, I couldn't resist the shells along the bottom, even though it wasn't part of the layout (but I know Sharon won't mind, she is not a stickler for rules - she just wants us to all have fun!!).
Being from Nova Scotia, I love all things nautical....it is one of the things I miss the most out here in the middle of the prairies!
