CCCBC58 - by the sea

My card uses stamps & dsp from the NEW Stampin' Up! Summer Mini. I am posting this card to the challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog challenge #58 with the theme of 'by the sea'.

I stamped images from The Open Sea set #123032 onto kraft cardstock in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I smudge Chocolate Chip ink all around the edges and on the surface. I cut DSP from the collection Nautical Expedition #122343 and punched a border.
On a piece of Confetti White cs I stamped the sailing ship from Sail Away #123013. I smudged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and then I added a little Soft Sky ink to the water area. I threaded some of the red and white striped twine through a needle and then sewed on the ropes that hold up the sails. Rubbed a little more Chocolate Chip on that. Then I added a button and my sentiment, which reads "If God were not Willing to Forgive Sin, Heaven would be Empty."-- German Proverb
