Out on the ocean

I'm a bit hooked on cards with lots of white at the moment. So I decided to go with a fairly clean and simple card with just a touch a light blue waves and die cut clouds, being inspired by  the photo over at Ink.  Then I needed to come up with a layout, which the Mojo Monday sketch made really easy for me. used my embossing folder with ropes, which I think also gives an illusion of waves. I made the die cut waves using the negative cuts from a scalloped border die.The frame and sentiment are made with dies from Dienamics and I used a metal charm and string from my stash.

This card is for these challenges:
Inkspirational - Photo
Mojo Monday - Sketch #409
Ooh La La Creations - Nautical
CAS on Sunday - #64 Travel

Also wanted to show you the lovely gift I received from Kim of Cupcakes, Cards and Kim - thank you so much! I love the little pouch and the goodies inside it!

What a fabulous effect you've achieved here - Soooooo completely nautical! But not predictable - that rope embossing folder was a great find, and I really like the pale shades you've chosen.
