FAUX NURSERY NECESSITIES

Today's Featured Stamper #96 on SCS is Annascreations. You can view Anna's beautiful gallery HERE, and HERE is Anna's card that I chose to case. I've had this card of Anna's in my favorites for a long time and have always liked how it so simply mocks the sailboat image from the Nursery Necessities stamp set.

I pretty much kept everything the same except the designer paper and colors, a different sentiment, and used brads with 1/4" circles behind. The designer paper is Manchester, and the colors are Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze, Kraft, and Very Vanilla. The Kraft background and the right sail were run through the Cuttlebug machine (non-SU) with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. The bottom of the sailboat is 1/2 of the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. I think the other details on the card are self-explanatory .. if not, feel free to contact me.
