I took one of my favorite stamps from the mini catalog and combined it with favorite new in color for this card. It is for the July Creative Crew challenge to use the in colors. I think Island Indigo goes great with Early Espresso and Crumb Cake!

Great card. Love that fabulous new color: island indigo. I predict it will be a wonderful color for this year. Your tall ship looks terrificly scary on the island indigo. It reminds me of the Perfect Storm!
Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous card Rita. I love the way you've stamped and coloured onto the watercolour paper. Love the way you've done the compass too. I do not understand why stampin up wouldn't have put this set in the new catty, it is so wonderful and I don't even like boats !
