DS96 & PP156 {Baby Boy Sailboat Card}

Despite the rain, yesterday was a good day! And the rain just makes the snow melt and wash away, so it's not such a bad thing! I spent the morning cleaning the apartment and my crafting table (scraps of paper everywhere!). I then picked up my hubby from the airport (it was SO good to see him!) and spent the rest of the day papercrafting (only 2 weeks left before the craft show!)

For today's card, I played along with two challenges: Deconstructed Sketch and Pal's Paper Arts. 

I love this colour combo! It's perfect for a baby boy card. And the sketch has just enough layers. Instead of the heart shape, I decided to put together a sailboat using punch art.

It was super easy to make! I simply cut a 1-3/8" circle in half for the boat itself, and the sails were created by cutting 1-1/4" and 1" squares in half. I popped it up to give it some dimension. A small green heart is added to one of the sails and bakers twine is wrapped around the boat for an added embellishment.

Thanks for looking!
