Sailing Pennant Parade

Hello again,  I have another card made with the Pennant Parade stamp set. When I first come across this fabby idea on Splitcoast stampers forum I just let out a little squeal of excitement, I thought it to be great and I wished I thought of it!!Winking smile
boat close-2
Isn’t it cute? It would make the perfect young boy card, it is also very quick to put together because it more or less only uses punches.
the colours used are Pool Party, Real Red , Early Espresso, Island Indigo.
And here’s a close up of the cute boat
