Baby congratulations

A little baby card today!
I've decided to take the plunge and join in the Less Is More challenge blog - I hope it is CAS enough...! The theme is Thank you or Congratulations.

I started with a blue base card 12x12cms when folded.
Then I cut white card 10x10cms and printed Congratulations using 'the girl next door font', and glued it to the base card.
I punched a circle from brown card and cut it in half, then put it through a paper crimper.
I cut two different sized triangles from gingham card for the sails and a thin sliver of brown for the mast.
Then punched the sun from yellow card but I can't remember what the punch is called or the make of it - sorry!
I cut the ric rac strip with this Sizzix die that my friend lent me.
I assembled it all together, added a tiny button on the boat and some doodling with white and black pens.
Looking at the photo, I think I should have moved the 'congratulations' a bit more to the right...but it'll have to do now!

Thank you for visiting today, and I hope you all have a lovely bank holiday tomorrow :)
