Ooh La La #186

It's time for another challenge at Ooh La La. Last time we asked you to show us your Christmas cards. There were many fab entries and choosing a top three was difficult as usual. This time it's a Nautical theme and this makes me think of wonderful sailing weather which it is here at the moment. It would be lovely to be out on a boat when it's hot with a breeze to cool you down.

My inspiration for you comes from Ooh La La's latest CD with the wonderful artwork by Paula Oakley. The range of beautiful images on this CD is amazing. If you haven't already purchased it you are missing out guys. Pop over to the Ooh La web site and check it out you won't be disappointed.

I chose a side stepper design for my card using Kraft card. The background paper is from the same CD. I added the image to the first step at an angle. The sign above the image, To the Beach, was from my stash. The verse on the back step was originally a bookmark with sentiment also from OLL. I thought the card would be appropriate for a retirement card so I added the greeting, "Congratulations on your retirement" which was in my stash. The starfish wooden embellishments that I added to finish it off have been in my stash for eons...not sure where they came from sorry. The bottom step I  left blank to personalise it later.

If you want more inspiration please pop over to see what the rest of the team have created. The link to OLL is in the sidebar.

Have a crafty week and I look forward to visiting you all soon.
