Let Your Dreams Set Sail

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Anne Harmon our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Anne tells us that she wakes up in the morning to the NEWS.  Make a card using each of these letters…..N, E, W, S.

When I was recently thinking about what to do for this challenge I was flipping through some products sitting on my desk and came across the Swirl Easel Card from Crafter's Companion. Once I saw this I knew that this die covered two of the letters I needed to do for this challenge ... E for Easel Card and S for Swirl. So this became the starting point of my card.

To Cover the challenge these are what I came up with for this challenge
N - Nuvo Drops (the color is Neptune, so another N); Nautical
E - Easel Card
W - White; Wheel (ships wheel on the patterned paper.
S - Swirls; Sentiment; Sail Boat; Sea Breeze

When I was looking through papers for another card I noticed this paper which I thought would make a great Easel Card and also worked with this challenge. 

I added the swirls from the die set to the bottom layer of my card and added a sentiment onto a white piece of cardstock.

Here is a look at my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

And finally a look at the inside of the card.
