River Boat Thank You

On Saturday night we were invited on a River Boat Dinner Cruise and I made this card to thank our friends. We had a wonderful time, met several new people, and had an amazing viewing point for the fireworks competition at Coney Island. It was a perfect evening!!

I used the ship image from Inspired by Travel from My Favorite Things and the layout is FMS53 from the Freshly Made Sketches blog. I decided to watercolour instead of using my copic markers so I had to dig out my watercolor paper, but once I found it I used the Designer Labels 3 STAX Die-namics to cut out the image panel. I stamped the ship with Palette Noir ink and set it aside to dry completely. The colours I used on the image were Memento teal zeal, Memento potter's clay, Memento london fog and SU soft sky. I used my Circle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out a Steel Grey circle for layering and added a circle of rhinestones to jazz it up.

The background paper is from the Authentique Fresh collection. I didn't want to cover it up with strips of paper so I used the cut out portion of the Retro Squares Die-namics to cut out strips of Tangy Orange, Sweet Tooth, and SU sahara sand.

On the inside I stamped a Thank You sentiment from Thanks A Bunch and used the Solid Bracket Border Die-namics to cut out the Tangy Orange accent.

Here are the Die-namics I used:
