Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Surf's Up

It is the middle of July and sun, surf and sand is on the summer agenda for many.  Believe it or not, I do not have one single nautical image other than this sailboat, so I am sailing instead of surfing today.

I must admit, I struggled with this one and it apologies.  Think there is a reason I don't have surf themed stamps LOL!  I love this sailboat image that has been retired by Stampin' Up as it makes great masculine cards.  I sponged on the colour blocks as per the blocks of surfboard colour in the photo and added a touch of twine and a button for a bit of interest.  Think hubby or son will end up with this one as they are not as enamoured with receiving a "pretty" card as they care a lot more about what is on the inside - phew!  Check out the rest of the Crew for some great inspiration.

Struggles or not I think you've made a great card. The horizontal stripes mimic the colors of the skyline perfectly and the simple sailboat is a wonderful image.

You may have struggled with this one, Marisa, but I love it! I find masculine card very hard to make (and truthfully, I don't like to make making cards for gals! Haha!). But I love the sailboat and how you've sponged the colors across much like the surfboards. What a great inspiration card! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
