A sail! The card that made itself



This is not the card I set out to make today.

I have been making Christmas cards and tags and halloween-y things so much lately that when I went into my Big Box of Wonderful (you know, the place where I can magically pull out a card for any occasion?), there was not a birthday card in sight. 

So, I pulled out the Soho Subway DSP and some matching cardstock. To make a cute card for a woman on my team who has a birthday this week.

Um.

This card will not work for that.

At all.

OK, but doesn't this gorgeous blue just leap at you? And can't you kinda see a turbulent ocean in that woodgrain? Once you see the ocean, you have to put a ship on it. And once you put a ship, you need a compass. And rope. And a flag.

Right?

Anyway, this one made itself. I'll make a card for my friend later. :-)

Happy sails!
