Father's Day Nautical

I love this new paper and matching set from the Summer Mini Catalog which begins May 1st.
The paper is called Nautical Expedition and the set- The Open Sea!
I guess I didn't look real close at the colors because I used Riding Hood Red and it says Cherry Cobbler as one of the colors in the paper....Oh well! So for this card I wanted an aged look with a few torn edges and some sponging with River Rock ink to give it a yellowed look, especially over the stamped ships manifest part. The main stamping was done with Early Espresso and Not Quite Navy inks, with some layering using the Nautical Paper! I love the Cherry Cobbler/White Baker's Twine that is strung across under the Father's Day between two Navy brads. I also used the Postage Stamp Punch layered behind the compass also out of the new Summer Mini Catalog!
~Stamps: The Open Sea, Something to Celebrate (L-2 Occasions mini)
~Paper: Whisper White CS, Riding Hood Red CS, Nautical Expedition DS paper.
~Inks: Espresso, Not Quite Navy, River Rock.
~Accessories: Cherry Baker's Twine, Navy Brads, 1/16" Circle Punch, Postage Stamp Punch, Sponge, Dimensionals.
