Wetlands

I love using this stamp set from Stampin' Up, makes me get my inks and Pan Pastels out again.  Here I've used Distress Inks on a linen textured card and added a Hero Arts sentiment.  I live about as far from the sea as it's possible to get in England, this is a days out and away card for me:).  I added some thick kitchen string to keep the nautical feel.
I'm entering my card for:
Simon Says - vacation/ travel
Keep it Simple - maritime
Addicted to CAS - texture
Artistic Inspirations - anything goes with wings
Allsorts - Happy Birthday
