Our Craft Lounge - Smooth Sailing

Greetings All!!  I'm here today posting along with my friends at the OCL for their upcoming new Valentine's Day releases!!  Today I'm previewing a set called Smooth Sailing.  SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO crazy cute!!  I decided to paper piece the adorable sailboat.  I pieced the sail as well as the boat.  I used my Copics to color in the hearts, small flags as well as the water.

I've used both Basic Grey and Martha Stewart designer papers.  My cardbase is kraft cardstock from JoAnn Fabrics.  

I added my sentiment on a MFT Die-namic and created two different color mattes for it to match my color scheme.  I stamped my anchors in red and used them as a fabulous border along the bottom of my card.


There is some fabby blog candy being given away over at OCL so remember to leave love on all of the gals blogs so that you can be entered into a drawing to possibly win!!
