open sea

here's a new card I did for a recent "summer mini" swap using the open sea stamp set, nautical expedition dsp, and the cherry cobbler/white baker's twine. I took the cardstock choices directly from the dsp, using cherry cobbler, not quite navy and early espresso. it was pretty bland looking initially, then I added the pearls on the compass and bottom side and added the happy birthday (again with pearls) using the modern label punch. I would have made it a father's day card in general, since the nautical theme lends itself to a more masculine card, but the happy father's day stamp I had didn't fit in the word window punch, so "happy birthday" it was! sometimes necessity
IS the mother of invention.
