Sketch Saturday #331

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Simon Says Stamp

I wanted to use some new papers I bought called Cape Cod by the Paper Studio for my card this week so as per usual I had to play around with the sketch.  I rotated it and made the two panels different sizes because the strip with the boat on it was only an inch and a half deep but it looked soooooo good with my chosen image - this gorgeous little guy from Mo Manning's Sailor Boys set which you can find here.

I didn't have access to my craft room when I made this card and I was initially sad that I have so many nautical embellishments that I couldn't use but in the end, I made the card all about the image itself and even if I do say so myself and shouldn't - I'm really pleased with it.  I also did my first ever machine sewing on a card.  It's a bit wonky but I think that adds to the charm!  

We would love to see you play along with Alex' fun sketch so scooch some space on your craft table and join in!  And don't forget to share some love with my fabulous teamies all of whom have made lovely cards for your inspiration.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Make My Monday - Babies and Children;
Papertake WeeklyLoves Rubber Stamps and Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes; and
Hanna and Friends - Blue, Cream + one other colour (red)
