Set Sail

Hi,bit of a dramatic time here! My husband spent the night at hospital last night......but he's okay now. We are all very tired though!
So,after school run decided to do my housework and then get into my craft room. If I went back to bed I just wouldn't sleep tonight,so I am ' doing' the 'keep going' mode!!
I love sailing - not the dinghy kind,but yachts. With this in mind I came up with this card.....

I used Just Because Cards for the card,sea and boat. I cut acetate 'sea' ,embossed with divine swirls and overlayed the card sea and added dew drops. The sails are stamped and clear embossed. The boat was also embossed. The clouds were cut from Create a Critter. I used white lace behind the boat for the sea foam and added an anchor charm to the stern,(the charm is another 99p shop find).

Close up to show all the dimension.                                          Close up of the acetate.

 I am entering this over at Fantabulous Cricut challenge #61 - Blue Skies. There are some really lovely DT projects so do check them out. It's taken all evening to try and post this and now I am off to bed.....
