I absolutely love how this card turned out. It just makes me think of a cottage by the sea. I had to fiddle around for a bit to get the boat just so (and did a wee bit of paper piecing, too), but all the fiddling was worth it! The second card was made using the Verve set Shining Star, as well as the matching Stars die.
The clean simplicity of this card just makes me happy and that is one reason I love it so much. This was one of those cards that just came together with little effort and turned out exactly as I wanted it to. The other thing I like is how I was able to make the card clean and simple, but give it a bit of shabby edge.
Thanks for stopping by...
