I Saw Three Ships

I noticed the challenge over at Try it on Tuesday is Travel.  I have been itching to ink up a new to me Crafty Individuals stamp as I start thinking about my Christmas Cards for 2012 and so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity!  I elected to use red and green card stock, but kept the rest of the card in black and white with some Pumice Stone Distress Ink.  Simple embellishments include Silver Liquid Pearls and vintage black seam binding.  We have friends who sail, so I think this will be their Christmas Card!  Best wishes, Yvonne

A beautiful card indeed. Love the old images and nautical feel...

Really love this arrangement. I'm liking the way you use the pumice stone as I don't use this colour very much and against the red it all looks vintage and just wonderful.

Beautiful use of the CI stamp and great colour choice for it and wonderful embellishments.
I too have started my Christmas cards and it feels sooooo good to have them underway, I vowed not to have a repeat performance of last year which turned out to be frantic and with no pleasure in it.
Wonder if we will see you at the CI or TSC?!!!
Wishes
