Row, row, row your boat

Hi!  Somewhere in Blogland, I saw a card that featured a tiny boat inside a jar, turned on its side.  I thought it was so clever, and wanted to give it a try:


I used a retired The Craft's Meow set, It's A Shore Thing, for the boat and water droplets.  The jar is from Inspired By Stamping, and the sentiment is Hero Arts (all details are in the supply list at the end of this post).  After the water drops were stamped, I added some Glossy Accents to make 'em shiny.  A twine bow adds another nautical touch.


Clean and simple, that's for sure.  This card kind of reminds me of my friend, Amy.  She LOVES jars on her cards.  =)
