Just Sailing By....for Scrapy Land Challenges

It's the 3rd Wednesday in September, and we're starting a new challenge today over at the Scrapy Land Challenge Blog. We've started switching things up a bit, and we're now giving away one $15 gift certificate chosen by  The design team chooses top 3 and honorable mentions.

I often like cards without too much "clutter".  I want the image to make a statement, so I keep them pretty simple.  I don't want the viewer's eye to get lost looking for the message in the card.  Today's card is a case in point.  Clean and simple, and to the point:

There's just one die on here, but it makes an impact, doesn't it?  The Scrapy Land Store sells 7 different sailboat dies.  This one is by Impression Obsession.  I like the clean lines of it.  It's called Sailboats, and there are 3 dies in the set.  This is the biggest die in the set. 

The papers on this card are from the We Are 3 Digital Shop.  I thought it needed some nautical themed papers.  I computer generated the sentiment, then glued that sailboat at the edge so it could sail right off the card.

Scrapy Land products used on this card:

I hope you are able to join us at the Scrapy Land Challenge Blog.  Our challenges are Anything Goes, as long as you use a die found in the Scrapy Land Store.  Scrapy Land sells many brands of dies, so chances are, you already own one!  Make something and link up!  I'd love to see what you create! 

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- September Linky Party
Word Art Wednesday -- ATG
Die Cutting Divas -- Just Because
