Paper Smooches GDT Week 4

I can't believe it is my last week as a GDT member with Paper Smooches Stamps.. I have had so much fun playing with these guys.. Thank you to Kim for giving me the chance to shine on your blog.. :) on to my creation....
Can you believe this simple little card I used 7 stamp sets from Paper Smooches.. I love them.. and this was ton's of fun!
The waves and the dots on the boat came from the Alphadots set. The Sail is made from the banana in the Fruitastic set. That cute little star on the sail is from the hang in there set. I used the surf and turf set for the sentiment, and the wave. The adorable little bird is from the FOLKal points set. The cloud is from the Spiffy Scooters set. The base of the boat is from the Vegtastic set.
I took a piece of wood from a dead branch outside, cut it down to size, and wrapped some twine around it to give it character. :)
Challenges
Kraft-song inspiration (Sailing by Christopher Cross.. :) the little boat is made from kraft paper..
Sketchy colors-Blue color challenge



I have to tell you this card is so fun, fast, and easy to make.. okay.. all you have to do is ink up your whole Alphadot stamp set (first take off the "hi" from the cling sheet.. lay your paper on top of the stamps and rub.. :) take the "hi" and ink them up in the color you like.. :) and stamp.. add a few embellishments and voila.. :) it's one of my favorites right now.. :)

Alison, your card is darling! I love the die cut sailboat! Love your colorizing scheme on this as well. Is so suits the striped background paper. The little birdie sitting on the boat is a really cute touch as well. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
