Sail Away!!

I am totally in love with all things beachy and nautical. Today's card is one that I made for a turquoise and brown swap on SCS hosted by Angela. It combines the color combo with my love of the sea. All products used are from Stampin Up! unless otherwise noted.
 I chose Temptingly Turquoise for the the card base. The "Sail Away" stamp was stamped with Choc chip ink onto Very Vanilla and cut into an oval with my nesties. I also used a label Nestie in Creamy Caramel under it. I sponged the edges of the Vanilla with Baja Blue and the edges of Creamy Caramel with Choc. Chip. I placed a strip of Baja Blue under that with a strip of Chocolate Chip along the bottom. I stamped "For You" with Versamark and used Temptingly Turquoise EP. Then I chose a Baja Blue cordoroy button and tied it on with twine.
 All that was placed on a very Vanilla card front and attached to the base. I really like the way it turned out. LMK what you think!!!
