 Happy Thursday All!! I hope you are all enjoying your week.  Life has been busy but I am so thankful that the heat is so much less this week!!  Mid 80's feels like fall or winter compared to the 100 degree days of last week.

This week I have been trying to join more of the challenges at Splitcoast Stampers. What a fun and challenging sketch at Splitcoaststampers Yesterday (SC393)! I decided to challenge myself even more to a white on white card and make my image pop.

The stamps used are Surging Sea and Smooth Sailing from Our Daily Bread Designs. The ship reminds me of summer vacation and the many cruises people enjoy.  Not me....since I get terrible motion sickness even in a car...but many others love cruises.

The card Shape uses Labels 23 (Grand) from Spellbinders. The image is framed with Petite Ovals (large and small) from Spellbinders.  The embossing folders are Stars and Swiss Dots from Provocraft.

Thanks for stopping by!! I so appreciate your comments and visits! Have a great week!!

This is beautiful Chris. I love all the white and embossing, and the way you mirrored the pennant with the twine. Those stamps are on the way to me, and might even be here tomorrow, I can't wait!

I agree...80 degrees does feel like fall after having 90+ to 100 degree weather. I loooove this card, especially how you did the twine. Very cool!
