Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge 1 - My Version

Today I'm excited to share with you my take on the Stampin' Queen's first ever Sketch Challenge.

I decided to use my The Open Sea stamp set and I will be sending this card along to Stampin' Up Headquarters in Salt Lake City in the hopes of encouraging them to keep this fabulous set and the Nautical Expedition papers on the "still available list".  See my SOS button on the side-bar for more details. 
My card base is Cherry Cobbler and I've used 3 strips of Nautical Expedition paper mounted on Night of Navy cardstock for the background.  Each of the strips of DSP were sponged with Night of Navy.  A strip of Cherry Cobbler Ribbon was rauched for the ribbon detail and I omitted doing a bow from this sketch.  I also love the Word Play Stamp Set and I chose the sentiment "You Mean The World 2 Me" feeling this was significant in my quest to save the On the Open Sea Set.  Hope that makes sense.  The globe on the sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and adhered with dimensionals. 
I kept the inside simple by just adding a piece of matching Nautical Expedition DSP.  In hind sight I might stamp and emboss  the Sail Away stamp in the bottom right hand side in Cherry Cobbler..............yeah I think that might do it!  Enjoy.

Hope you like this simple card and will check out all the rest of the beautiful design team and participants cards on the Stampin' Queen's site.  They are simply awesome!

Great card. I never got this set. I procrastinated ordering it and now the mini is coming to an end. If SU keeps it on, I just might cave. Your colors are great too.

I love this set, I have used it to death this summer for man cards, couldn't believe it wasn't in the idea book and catalog, good luck in your pursuit.
