Sailboats on Saturday

Evening all.  Well we've had a cracker of a storm here in Hull today...Mahoosive rumbles of thunder a couple of flashes of lightning and tons of rain (up near my sister had massive hailstones!).  Would of liked the thunder to have been later, I love watching the lightning in the dark  lol

Had a voucher to spend at LOTV so treated myself to some of the boy stamps.  Also received a candy package that I won from  Fleur and couldn't wait to use the gorgeous papers! - thanks Fleur!  The card for today is a result of using some of both as well as a few bits from my stash.  Tried the out of the frame technique for this one which turned out not too bad....also added a bit of glossy accents to make the water look more real.

I have followed sketch 94 from the Sketch and Stash Blog for this card
