Saturday Sketch Challenge 4/30

Today's challenge gave me a chance to play with one of the new sets in the Summer Mini which you can order Sunday, May 1st!!! How Exciting!!! That being said, this is your last chance to grab any of those sets from the Occasions Mini that you haven't purchased yet. Just go to my Stampin' Up! website and click the Shop Now button to order today! 

Now on to my card for today! You can view a list of all the other Designers over at the UDI Blog or you can just follow the link at the bottom of this post to "skip" to the next Designer.  Here's the sketch:

and here's my take on it:

Stamp Set:  The Open Sea
Ink:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Cardstock:  Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, Nautical Expedition Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Cherry Cobbler/White Baker's Twine, Swirly Decorative Strip Die

Now, skip on over to Tammy's Blog and feast your eyes on her project!  I hope you will also keep all of the victims of the tornadoes in Arkansas in your prayers!
