Sail Away to the Retro Rubber 06 Challenge

Sail Away, Hello Sailor, NauticalAs I mentioned last week, it is “anniversary season” around my house, so I am back to working on suitable cards for my husband. He loves the ocean and almost every vacation we have had in the now 26 years of marriage has involved visiting one. Sail Away is a retired single stamp that I just knew he would love! This stamp is great on cards and scrapbooks so it will be used a lot!

I made this card for the new Retro Rubber sketch challenge that is starting today! I hope you will play along. It is a very good sketch that will certainly stretch your creativity. Ready to play along? Here’s how:

  1. LOVE this card, Debbie. The sailboat image is perfect for your husband’s anniversary card. Full of gorgeous layers and details that you do so well. I think my favorite detail is the added “you’re my”. You should frame this for his office!!

  2. What a beautiful card, Debbie! Such warm colours. I know your husband will treasure it. Am wondering how you made the waves. I love that! I think this is one of my favourite cards ever and I agree with Katy about the sentiment. Very sweet.

  3. Wow, another great card! You did fabulous work with this sketch, Debbie. That folder is perfect for this card. So, so nice.

  4. What a wonderful card for your hubby. He’s got great taste in both his spouse and vacation choices! 🙂 Your coloring is phenomenal here, Debbie–I feel like I’m right there on the water in the boat. But your “waves” from the embossing folder–brilliant! and so very well done!
