A Seaside Postcard

Hello, it's Bridget here today with a card using a couple of my favorite Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps sets, Vintage Postcard and The Sea.  It seems a perfect pairing, considering many people send home beautiful postcards of their vacation destinations by the sea!
The layout is thanks to Korin, who gave it to us for this weeks Sketch Challenge at Splitcoaststampers!
I also used the set Light of Christmas to add some script bg to the left side of the postcard.  Because I wanted the edges of my stamping to fade out, I wiped away ink around the edges of the stamps before stamping.
The dp and cardstock have been sponged with Ranger Distress Scattered Straw and Frayed Burlap for a distressed look.  I used a post-it-note cut with a Spellbinders circle to mask a sun behind the sailboat.  The seam binding has been sprayed with water and crinkled up.
Have a great Wednesday, the week is half way over!
Hugs, Bridget

Bridget, I love this card. It's like a last farewell to summer and the last weekend at the cabin. The colors are perfect and makes me rejoice in the beauty of the summer we had!
