Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #21

Hey everybody! I tell you what, I am so glad the card calls are finished! I have been working on those for about a week, knowing I have so many other things to do too! WOW, it's alot of work, but I bet it will be so worth it, when I see one of my cards in print! I have my first card being published in CARDS this February! WOO HOO! I thought it would never get here! :)

I made this card for Dawn's Color Challenge, last week, but I am just now posting it! I really loved the colors, they just screamed baby boy to me! So I took a break on the St. Jude cards, and made a baby card! :) Doesn't that twine in the button, look like a bird over the sun? My husband pointed that out, I thought it was pretty cool! :) And look what came in the mail today! My kids usually check the mail at the post office, well now we have two boxes, so they take turns checking the boxes. Well, today they were SUPER excited when they came out of the Post Office! They could hardly hold all of the packages! Today we got 46 cards in! Just Amazing! Thank you all so much! :) Here are the packages from today.
Also, I wanted to mention, that my card, got Honorable Mention for best use of leaves, over at Nichole Heady's blog! I have never participated in the challenge before, so it was so fun to get mentioned! Thanks Nichole! :)

Supplies
Cardstock- (PTI) lemon tart, aqua mist, dark chocolate (Paper reflections) cream
Stamps- (PTI) signature greetings, (Martha Stewart) clear toy transportation
Ink- (SU!) close to cocoa, (Versamark) watermark

What a sweet little card! I love the way you popped it off. It almost seems as if the sailboat is going to start rocking back and forth and just sail away! Very nice job.
