Smooth Sailing Flopsey

This is my card for the Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC105).  Karen Giron is the brains behind the Sweet Sunday Sketch and I'm loving these sketches - it makes making a card so easy!

I used Smooth Sailing Flopsey from MFT and the, oh so perfect, Catch a Wave Die-namics also from MFT which I cut from felt - another first for me.....felt on a card!  The patterned paper is October Afternoon Seaside.  A trio of star eyelets and that was it.

I just love the wood look of the boat and how I wrote "JennyWren" on it.  This card is for my friend who has a boat called the "JennyWren" so I'm super excited to give this to her.  The entire image is paper pieced - I finally get the rules of paper piecing for keeping an image in proper perspective.  Thanks for your patience Karen :)
