Scrapy Land Challenge #23

Hello Friends,

Well today is the first Wednesay of August and you know what that means ~ Another New Bi-monthly Challenge at Scrapy Land.  This is SL Challenge #23:  Theme:  Anything Goes using SL die brands.  This Challenge will run from Wednesday, August 5th to Sunday, August 16th.  Please be sure to check out the other SL Design Team members creations for inspiration.  The winner will win a $15 Gift Certificate to the Scrapy Land on-line store.

 **It would be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your projects!**

Here is my card for Challenge #23:

For this card I started with kraft card stock, then I cut out the Die-Versions Whispers Rope Background die in white and I distressed it with grey and green gelatos and added that to the card.  Next I added the May Arts Nautical ribbon to the left hand side of the card.  Next I cut out the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Ovals in a dusty blue paper, inked the edges with navy blue ink  and added that to the card.  Then I cut out the Die-Versions Whispers Lighthouse die several times using Core'dinations paper in several colors and I sanded the paper to give the lighthouse an old weathered look.  I inked the edges with black ink and pieced it together and placed that on the dusty blue oval.  Next I cut out the "enjoy" from the Penny Black  Hooray dies with red star paper and added that to some black fun foam for thickness.  Next I took some bakers twine and wrapped it around the card and knotted it with a red button.  Now don't you want to go sailing?  I sure do!

Don't forget to check out the inspiration from the Design Team here.  Now it is your turn to play along with us!  We can't wait to see what you create!
