Happy Anniversary

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  As it is the 5th Wednesday of the month, we have a fabulous sketch for your inspiration:
No photo description available.
And here is the card I created using the sketch:
My husband and I are celebrating out 20th Anniversary today!!  This is the card I made for him.  When I first saw the bottom horizontal element of the sketch, I thought right away that it was perfect for ribbon and a bow.  But once I started thinking about using the sailboat, I thought it would be fun to turn it into a nautical type knot.  I used some leftover twine that I received as some packaging and I think it turned out pretty cool.
Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you hop over to the House blog for all the details and to see what the rest of the team created.  And if you need any of the stamps I used, make sure you check out the 10% off your entire order coupon over in my left sidebar.

I love the color scheme you used on this awesome nautical card, Heather! The stripes and polka-dots are so fun together, and the nautical knot at the bottom is absolutely perfect!
BTW - Happy Anniversary! (We celebrated 20 years in April of this year!)
