God's Transportation

     A friend of mine asked for a card with the sentiment "Let God steer your ship". I had made one last summer that she liked and wanted more of them. I see this card as a masculine graduation card. It indicates the best way to determine a future path.
     


     I used Carta Bella's "Old World Travel" paper collection. I didn't see a paper in line that had a light (contrasting) background, so I used seagull stamps on ivory to make my own patterned paper.
     All of the stamps are from Gina K's "Ship to Shore". The ink is Gina K's Dark Chocolate and Momento's Rich Cocoa.
     I embellished with brown twine and a sea shell charm.The anchor on the inside of the card is from an Elizabeth Craft Designs die.
     As usual the inside of my card is inspired by the "stuff" left over on my craft table after completing the card.
     You can also see a peek of the envelope in the pictures -- the flap in the first pic and the address side in the second pic.
