Sailing Away!

Here is a card I made for yesterday's Ways to Use It challenge at SCS, but I thought it was too cute not to share with you on the blog! Deedee's images are so fun to work with. The challenge was to use grey as a neutral. I chose this sailboat as my main image and colored it with copics, using just a big of grey. I took the red from the flag and highlighted that with reds throughout. I love the pop of white against the grey and red. I embossed the horizontal grey panels with Swiss Dots. I added a stitched grosgrain ribbon and tied it with grey and white ribbons. Finally, I added some white brads across the top to mimic the portholes of the boat.
Thanks for stopping by again!
Supplies used:
Stamps - Deedee's Digis Sailing Away
Paper - Bazill grey, red, white
Accessories - Copics, Cuttlebug EF, grosgrain ribbons, satin ribbon, brads, dimensionals


  1. Wow! This is super cute and I love the color combo you used. Great boy card!

  2. This is beautiful, Kelly! Perfect "sailing" colors, and I really like how you repeated them all throughout, especially in the ribbons. Love the layering -- so crisp and clean like the salty ocean air. Great card!
