CFC102

When I saw this week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays
the first two ideas that popped into my head were 4th of July and nautical.  Though I love the 4th of July, I'm not quite ready to skip to that holiday, so I went with a nautical theme. This card is pretty simple - just a little embossing and paper piecing.  Lately I've been trying to use up some of the supplies in my stash and my less used stamps and dies, but I feel like I've been forcing it too much on some of my cards and haven't really been pleased with the results.  I think I finally found a balance on this card.  I used some older supplies, but the final product still feels "me"ish and I'm happy with how it turned out.  Yay for that!
