Open Sea Thank You

For today's card, I was inspired by the following sketch at the Paper Craft Crew.

I started with The Open Sea stamp set by Stampin' Up.  I enjoy using stamps to create texture on the cardstock. This adds more interest to the overall design of the card.  For the Basic Gray panel, I stamped a combination of the globe and compass with matching ink.  The small element was created using a stamp from the By the Tide set embossed in Silver embossing powder.  The sentiment is from Regarding Dahlias. 

All Items Stampin' Up unless noted
Stamp:  The Open Sea, By the Tide, Regarding Dahlias
Paper:  Night of Navy, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Ink:  Night of Navy, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, Versamark
Other:   1" Circle Punch, White Baker's Twine, Siler Embossing Powder
