Play Date Cafe 394 challenge - Ahoy Matey

(Note - this is my 2nd post for the day.  I also participated in the Colour Q challenge ... scroll down to see that post as well!)

Another great color combo found here on the Play Date Cafe challenge #94!  I just couldn't resist.










The colors just looked like nautical-like when I had them all laid out on my craft desk.  So I pulled out my Out to Sea stamp set (Papertrey Ink) and got to creating! 
I ended up with these little mini cards.  I create them to leave little notes on my co-worker's desks, for birthdays, when they are sick, etc.  I am very low on the masculine variety so these will come in handy!

I hope you like!  Don't those oars look cool with the woodgrain stamped over top.  Buying that Designer Woodgrain background stamp (Hero Arts) was such a good investment!!

Well, thanks for dropping by.  Off to see what others did with these colors ....
