I am sneaking this card in by the seat of my pants...LOL
I have spent the afternoon working on DT projects and took a little break
to squeeze this card in...shhh don't tell!

I saw a couple of challenge for "nautical" 
and have had this image sitting on my desk forever!!

I wish you could see all the sparkle in the background paper...
it is the neatest nautical paper pad  I bought online last year 
and was the last one they had!! So I snatcher 'er up..lol!!

I used my poor neglected SU banner punch and a very old SU stamp set
called Alphabits for my "AHOY" banner.....

The little starfish were punched from sandpaper using an EK Success punch
and the anchor is a MS punch the hubby bought me years ago for Christmas!!

The red bow was a reject from a previous project.....so...

I am entering into the following challenges:

Frilly and Funky ....Vintage Seaside challenge
City Crafter .... Nautical
Creative Card Crew .... Nautical
Love To Scrap .... Love Your Banners

What a fabulous image! Love the anchor on the pretty red bow, and the "ahoy" banner. What great ideas I see here! I'm not feeling very creative lately, frankly. Must be summer. You are an inspiration!
