Boat Card for a Thank You

I made this card for a lovely couple who very kindly allowed my family to use their beautiful caravan last weekend.

The Hunkydory books came in useful again. I found this image which was perfect.

I made an 8x8in white easel card. I mounted the image onto blue card. I die cut the valance using a Cheery Lynn die. I matt and layered the top of the card with navy and then white card. I then attached the two valances and then added the image. I matt and layered the base with navy and white card to matt the top. I die cut the elements on the bottom using Spellbinders Nesting dies. I then cut the sentiment using a Cheery Lynn die. Unfortunately I didn't have a thank you die and I had run out of ink so "Best Wishes" had to do. I die cut the little boat with a die from a Sue Wilson baby set. I attached this element to the base of my card with foam pads so it will act as the stopper for the easel.
