Every Little Thing...

Hello friends and a happy Friday!
So I was inspired to play along with a challenge, but I wanted some specific images because I thought they would be perfect to use and of course I wanted them anyway and knew that I would use them over and over, so I was fine with that!  Here's my card and I'll explain about it:
I have used several different stamp sets from the same company The Alley Way Stamps, which I'll have listed below, but I was totally inspired by the photo for their "BE Inspired" challenge.  (There is also a photo of this below.)  Speaking of TAWS...they have just started their September sneak peeks of the newly released stamps that are coming out this month!  So be sure to check it out and leave a comment for your chance to win each day until the release!  CLICK HERE

The little waves I cut free-hand and were left overs from the background I created from the video that I haven't posted yet!  LOL!  Promise it should be coming soon!  I covered the top layer of waves with my Wink of Stella pen and it has a nice shimmer to mimic the reflective water.

The pattern on the sails are from a different set from the boat and the evergreens you see along the sides are from another set and of course the greeting is from another as well.  I used my distress inks to create the nice soft foggy sky you see which I think looks similar to the photo from the challenge.  I really like how this turned out.  Hope you like it too!  Thanks for dropping in today and enjoy your weekend!
