If you want to know how much I love you... count the waves.

Hi!  Happy Thursday!

I pulled back out the super adorable Smooth Sailing Flopsey stamp set to create this card.  I just adore this sentiment!

I kept a light feel, by using Kraft card strock to mat all my layers.  I paper-pieced the sail and boat with patterned paper (I think I used MME True Blue).  I cut the waves using the brand new Catch a Wave Die-namics die.  I stitched around the circle using a pencil line traced from a Spellbinders die, and did one stitch at a time using the knob on the side of the sewing machine.  Perfection takes patience.  LOL  I added some yellow sponging to show sunny skies. 

I added lots of stitching to this card.

Here is a peek inside:
