Hello Sailor! w/ FMS130

Have you ever had that moment after you've made a card that you feel proud of yourself?  You know, that moment when you just pull a Tom Cruise and slide across the dusty old hardwood floors in your socks kinda moment?!  Well I am having that moment!!  I always like my cards, but today I am really excited about this one.  WHY you ask?!  Well for starters, I don't even own this DSP pack.  Nope, but what I do have is MDS, a printer w/ ink, and it allowed me to print off the two patterned pieces I wanted to use.  Which brings me to say that I've just created my first Hybrid project!!!  Whoop Whoop!

I was thinking about the sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches all night.  I had even had a dream about it.  In my dream I was creating a nautical themed card.  So first chance I got today, I went to work.

 
I used three bright mini buttons along the border strip and added some knotted silver twine swirled across the bottom. I used a mixture of a punch and a framelit to create the title for the card.  You can check all the supplies I used at the bottom of this post.



I don't own the hello sailor stamp set either, so I printed out the ship wheel and punched him out with my 1-1/4" circle punch.
 
I really hope you have enjoyed my take on this sketch as much as I do!  Don't forget to leave some "love" before going to play along yourself!
