It's a boy

Hi everyone! It's a lazy Saturday and decided to see if I could come up with something to go with the challenge over at Simply less is more. Week 155 theme is "new baby" - Oh My Gosh - It took me at least an hour to figure out that I'm severely lacking in anything to do with baby stamps! What's a girl to do? Get creative!

Sail boat is from Verve and colored with Copic's. I ended up do a bit of fussy cutting to get it to fit among the waves!

Waves are created using the cloud border die from Paper Smooches. I created the white caps using white craft ink and a sponge dauber.

The flag is cut from a Sizzix die and then layered in red. The sentiment is from PTI. To make the flag pole, I used a wooden coffee stir stix and got out the metallic rub-ons and used the gunmetal color to make it look sorta silver. Lastly, added some bakers twine for the rope!

I tired to keep this CAS and not clutter it up. Which could have been done easily with adding stuff for the sky. I think I like it as is - what do you think?

I think you did right stopping there, Laurie. The focus pocus is on the happy news reflected in your awesome flag, which makes this a perfect take for the LIM challenge! And that rope treatment is to die for!! So pinning! Hugs, Darnell
