Sailing in Winter

My card today was inspired by a combination of two challenges, one to use the current Season (where ever you might be in the world) from Just Add Ink, and the other is to CASE a card from page 151 of the catalogue.

It’s Winter here in Australia, and recently it has been windy, blustery, cold, rainy, sunny, warm, overcast…. pretty much everything you can think of other than snow.  So I wanted to come up with something that felt like cold, windy and wintery.  Hmmm yes that was a challenge!
Sailing with Birds Card

The flying birds on this paper from the Bird Ballad DSP made me think of windy days, and I combined it with Gray Granite and Pretty Peacock.
The panel in the DSP was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, and I have used the Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies from the Come Sail Away Suite, which I am loving, so you will be seeing more of it over the next few weeks.

Happy Stamping!
