Happy Sailing

I am in a thank you card mode right now so I can send a few thank yous for birthday gifts. This first card is for Tom's brother and sister-in-law who took us sailing last weekend. They even had a small birthday cake for me. So I wanted to send a thank you for the wonderful time we had!

I sponged the background with darker blue ink. The image is from Gina K and the sails were paper pieced. I embossed the lighter blue piece with a border from Just my Type embossing folders and enhanced them with Crystal Stickles. They aren't showing up in the photo but they make it look really cool and shimmery. I added the Thank you sentiment.
The inside is a sentiment from Doodle Pantry.

I used the same paper that I used to piece the sails for the inside. The sentiment is cut with a die from Clear Dollar Stamps. 
I can't wait for the weekend. Work has been busy this week and I've had a bunch of things to catch up with at home. I'm hoping to spend my weekend being crafty! Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful background. I love how you created the water effect. The paper piecing is time consuming but so worth it in the end! Super cute!!
