ColourQ #331....Happy Birthday Old Salt

If you are looking for my CASology post, please click here.

Happy Tuesday and welcome to a new challenge at ColourQ.

We have a new color scheme for you today--beautiful blues and greens together that just made me think of the ocean.

I used the PTI Waves cover plate die and cut it from each of the 4 colors, then pieced it back together using a bit of each color.  I only used about 1/3 of the die, and that became my ocean.

I die cut and stamped a little sailboat, and then added one of my very favorite masculine/nautical birthday sentiments (Waltzingmouse Ocean Bound).

Please head on over to the ColourQ challenge blog to see more inspiration from the design team. I hope you will join in the fun and play along this week.

I am also entering this card at Seize the Birthday Anything Goes and Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes.

Thanks for Visiting
