On The Grow

I love this set. I think I would like to take a ride on this little bike. I am all for adventure. Yesterday we took a ride down to the bay and watched the sail boats and a beautiful Clipper Ship like the one in our stamp set The Open Sea. We decided to have lunch at the Red Sail Inn. I was so surprised at the prices and the food. Everything was excellent and we sat outside by the Marina. It was such a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

This card is made with Marina Mist cardstock, cut 5 1/2 by 8 1/2. I put it through the Big Shot with the Framed Tulip Embossing Folder to make that beautiful border. I have found that when you use the tulip border folder you should use it before you fold your card, otherwise it will not center on it the way it should. The Whisper White cardstock is 3 1/8 by 4 1/4. I used the ticket corner punch to do the corners of the white. I stamped the images in Basic Gray and colored it with Watercolor Crayons and the Blender Pen. I added a little Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon ( which is retiring, boo hoo) to give it a nice finished look.

I am just hating to see all the ribbon that is retiring, especially the taffeta's and satin's. I know we are getting some new ones and new colors but-- I just got all the other one's purchased and on July 1st they will be gone. So if you want any ribbon I suggest you purchase as soon as possible because I am certain it will go fast. Our ribbon is fantastic.

Thanks for stoppin in and I'll try to get back sooner this time.
