You float my boat

This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge - the theme for this week is 'I do like to be beside the seaside'.

I have used several Lawn Fawn stamps and dies to create this card and some scraps of paper from the Carta Bella Beach Boardwalk paper collection.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 187 - I do like to be beside the seaside!
Divas by Design - Tags

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog, your company is much appreciated.

This is a fabulous card Pauline, did you make the little holes for stitches by hand? What a lovely text stamp, it matches very well all together.
