Happy Birthday Sailor

For a friend who likes to sail
The sailboat stamp is Inkadinkadoo stamped and fussy cut. The sentiment is SU. I used SU bitty banner punch for the flags which are SU scraps. It reminds me of a mast on a sailboat with colorful flags flying. I couldn't leave the top with so much white space so I put a punched cloud, sponged with light blue, in the "sky". Do you have trouble leaving lots of white space on a card? I really admire those who can pull that look off but sometimes I just can't let it be!
I used the sketch from Fab Friday for inspiration.


  1. I'm with you on the white space thing. I admire cards with lots of it, but when I try to make a card like that I get uncomfortable with all the white space and feel like my card looks unfinished. Love your card - with or without the cloud. :)

  2. Donna - what a creative interpretation of the sketch! The three banners are adorable. I love white space (and it's a struggle when I can leave it), but that cloud is too adorable. Thanks for playing along with this Fab Friday sketch challenge.

  3. The boating theme is so cute! The flags totally look like a mast! Great job on our sketch! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  4. Very cute card! I love how you used the flags on a pole and made a little boat! So adorable! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Fab Friday!
