CYCI 69 - Sketch Challenge

Hello! Happy Sunday and to all of you Moms... Happy Mother's Day!  I will be spending my Mother's Day with at least one of my sons today so it will be a happy day indeed! :)

Today we have another sketch challenge over at CYCI.  Here's my take on the sketch..

I started with a A2 cardbase of Coastal Cabana cardstock and I layered on a piece of Night of Navy cardstock. I topped that with 2 patterns of  Maritime DSP with a thin piece of Night of Navy seperating the two DSP patterns.  I stamped the Octopus from the Stampin' Up! "Sea Street" stamp set in Coastal Cabana and cut it out with a Dies by Dave coordinating die.  I then using some reverse confetti banner/tag dies to cut out two DSP banners for the bottom of the card as well as a smaller one in Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the Vintage Stampin' Up! "Hello, Sailor" stamp set.  I hung the hello sailor tag from one of the arms of the Octopus and Attached it with Stampin' Dimensionals to my card.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you'll check out all of the other great inspiration the Design Team has for you this week and I hope you'll this this sketch challenge a try!
