I think the card today is made with a very "Nautically" expected color combination.  Night of Navy and Sahara Sand seems to be a common color combination used on nautical cards, so, I decided to just go with the flow -- or maybe with the wind.

First, I tore a couple of pieces of Sahara Sand to create my sandy beach.  I added speckles by flicking the cover of my Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Marker across the brush end of the marker. This takes a bit of practice, and it is not very predictable where the speckles are going to end up so don't wear a white shirt when using this technique!  Next, I used a sponge dauber to ink the torn edges

The water is stamped with Balmy Blue ink.  To make the clouds I used one of the Basic Border dies to create a mask from copy paper.  I then used my Blending Brush and Balmy Blue ink to make the clouds.

The Bakers Twine that I have wrapped around the bottom portion of the card front is an old, retired Bakers Twine that I have been hoarding.  It's time to start using it.  I believe we should use those things we have so I need to do a better job and stop hoarding embellishments that I love.

The sentiment is from Let's Set Sale, but the die cut was made with a die from Heron Dies.

For the inside of the card, I repeated the same sailboat as on the card front.  It is stamped with Night of Navy for the boat and Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Ink for the sails.  You can also see a portion of my coordinating envelope which has the same design.

I hope you have enjoyed this week's cards made with the Let's Set Sail Bundle.  I am not a sailor, but it does make me want to get out on my Pontoon boat and enjoy the water.

A list of products used on the card is shown below.  The Bakers Twine is Retired.
