Sailing Home for TTOT

Hello again and welcome. Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July with friends and family. I am also very blessed to have today off which gives me a 4 day weekend off! So I have been trying to post this card for TTOT and finally have a moment before this challenge ends. These layered shape challenges are a little challenging for me that I can find mine a little flat and not very interesting BUT!!...that's  why I like to join in and stretch my comfort zone! Also seeing how others interpret the sketch is so fun! This challenge also has a Summer Fun twist. So I used water and boating as my summer fun. I love a pool or going to the springs in the summer and sometimes tagging along on a friends boat for the afternoon ;)

Below is the challenge sketch...

Here is my card using the SAILING HOME set...

I used a wave EF and watercolored some backgrounds and splattered some champagne mist metallic ink for the sparkle you see on the water as the sun shines on it, though the camera didn't pick it up well. Colors I used were: SKY BLUE, DAFFODIL DELIGHT & GRAPEFRUIT GROVE. 

Thanks for stopping by and having a look. Have a great weekend and hope you can doing a little crafting yourself :)
