Sail Away - Simply Stampin' Challenge

I loved the sketch this week, and thought it went perfectly with my new Sail Away stamp from the mini catalogue. The quality of Stampin' Up! products never ceases to amaze me, and even my husband commented that the image left by this stamp was just like it had been hand sketched! The detail is just fantastic.
I have rotated/flipped the sketch, but that is allowed, and I have also replaced the sentiment with a knotted cord detail.
Luckily I had the perfect little anchor charm to go with this stamp, which I have attached using linen thread to the top left corner of the stamped image.

Let me know what you think of this one, I think it is really versatile and I was going to use it either for a men's birthday card, or alternatively as a sympathy card (obviously with the appropriate messages inside). Which do you think? Let me know!

  1. This is a wonderful masculine card. Nice work!

  2. I love the Sail boat for masculine cards...its really great! Liking all the distressed torn edges - think it adds to the rustic charm of the boat! Love it! xx

  3. This is gorgeous, I love the natural feel that it has. Perfect for a male birthday.
