Embellish Nautical Challenge

It's time for a new challenge over at the Embellish Magazine Blog!!! YAY!!! This time around it's a nautical theme and just LOOK at that FABULOUS color combo!!!

Here's what I came up with:

DeNami Design is sponsoring this challenge, so several of us DT gals are playing along for fun!!! The prize is a gift certificate to DeNami Design's online store, so you DEFINITELY want to make sure you play along!!!

DeNami has some SUPER CUTE nautical-themed sets! Here I used the adorable little boat from the Under the Sea Stamp Set and the anchor and "AHOY" from the Nautical Stamp Set! I LOVE these little stamp sets because they are so versatile!!! You can use them to create backgrounds, borders or focal points, and they are the PERFECT size for tags, labels, place cards, etc!!

The rope border is something I drew freehand using a white gel pen! Easy peasy---just a series of interconnecting forwards and backwards c's basically! Here's a closer look:

I've seen a number of my blog friends create these popped up port holes, and I thought it was the perfect way to bring in the chocolate brown piece of the color combo! Thanks for the inspiration, blog buddies!!!

So...what do you think? Are you ready to play along in this summery fun challenge?!?! Head on over to the Embellish Magazine Blog for all of the details and to check out some fantastic inspiration from their DT!!! And then, head on over to the DeNami Design Blog to see what my fellow DT gals have created---SO AMAZING!
