Life is a beautiful ride (FMS)

Update 11 March 2015:  Colouring applied to the clouds! #thedailymarker30day nr2
-----------------------------------------

I was very inspired by Freshly Made Sketch's latest layout and the bottom strip reminded me of waves, which lead to thinking of the ocean & nautical images!

Lots of paper piecing!  The clouds are just repeat stamping with the little cloud from Unity's "Mr Boy" and then fussy cut.  I used a light blue Spectrum Noir to colour the lines of the clouds. The boat & sentiment is from Unity's "Life is a beautiful ride".

Here's the sketch:
I would love to add this card into http://2015worldwideopendesignteamchallenge.blogspot.com.au/ !

Have a good day everyone!
