Sailboat Sunset

I created this card for an older man who's just gone through heart surgery...he lives by the sea along a beautiful harbour here in Northern Ireland and I know he'll find this sentiment very encouraging.
We just took my parents and sister on a sightseeing trip along the north coast of Northern Ireland and we stood on the stone formation of the Giants Causeway for a few hours, just taking in the vastness of the ocean and being amazed by it's Creator!
Today's Featured Stamper at Splitcoaststampers is Sophie LaFontaine, a very talented and friendly stamper and artist.  I was inspired by a card in her gallery with a sail boat theme found HERE.
I used the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps The Sea, and sponged the sky using a Papertrey Ink cloud die and a Nesties circle to mask the sun.  I then added the sentiment on a cloud die cut and some black and white twine to finish.
Supplies include:
Papertrey Ink cloud dies
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
SU Cool Caribbean, Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, Yoyo Yellow, Barely Banana ink
