You Float My Boat!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!!

Here is a sweet little card I created using the April SFYTT sketch!  I can't beleive that April is almost over...you still have a few more days to submit your card using this sketch though!  Check out Jen's post HERE for all the details.

For my card today, I used the darling Kid At Heart set from Taylored Expressions.  I hadn't inked up lots of images in this set, and for today, I wanted to work with this sweet sailboat.  I stamped this sweet boat with Memento Danube Blue and Memento Pear Tart onto Choice Snow White Cardstock.   I stamped the sentiment, "You Float My Boat", also from Kid At Heart, in Memento Tuxedo Black under the sailboat. 

I cut it out and embossed the panel with Square Nestabilities and then drew a frame in with my Copic Multliner.  I left a little space and added two of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles, of course using Embellie Gellie to place them perfectly.  

All of the patterned paper is Little Boy from Echo Park Papers (love that sailboat pattern!) and my background panel was embossed with the new Stars Impression Plate.  I opted to not sew on this one...I wanted a crisper look for my card.  I added three white brads on the bottom right corner and called it done!

Here is the Impression Plate I've used on my card today:
