Today's card was created using this week's Inspired By Challenge. The theme is beach day and this is Laurel's current inspiration board.
I love all of the different shades of blue and of course, the nautical stripes. Using those as my springboard I came up with this....
I turned to my Simon Says Stamp horizontal stripe background stamp and used my favorite Distress Ink swiping technique to create the worn look to the stripes. The anchor die and sentiment stamp/dies are from Taylored Expressions.
A very simple design but I'm happy to add it to my very tiny stash of masculine birthday cards.
