ahoy! {lawn fawn inspiration week}

It's the last day of lawn fawn's March inspiration week.  Have you enjoyed it this month?  Today, we're showcasing the 4x3 set, float my boat with its matching dies.

ahoy! {lawn fawn inspiration week}


I have to admit that I love this card.  I started out by clear-embossing the starry background, and then rubbing blue distress inks over the entire panel.  It created the perfect backdrop for my boat, the wavy panel, and my striped ahoy.  I keep using those Christmas papers! Red and white stripes are good for so many occasions.

For a finishing touch, I added a wood veneer anchor (I think it's by studio calico,) held in place by some red and white twine.

I hope you like it! There's more to see on the lawn fawn blog today.

ETA: I'm linking this card up to my friend Taheerah's weekly Cure for the Monday Blues challenge. What a great inspiration photo!
