Monday Montage 22

        Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop.  You should have arrived here from the wonderful Cathy Casey's blog.  If not and I'm your first stop- no worries! Simply use the back/next buttons at the bottom of this post to navigate your way around the hop.

Tonight's card is a nautical themed card.  I've always loved nautical themed things but have never really done much with them.  The more I play around with the Maritime DSP- I'm convinced that I need to decorate a room in my house with it!  I'm thinking I could create some fabulous home decor items using it!

This card is really very simple.  I loved this particular pattern for the DSP and wanted to use it as the main image for the background.  For the little flags at the bottom of the anchor banner- they are also from the Maritime DSP.  I just cut them out and tucked them in behind.  

I may have spent my entire weekend working for my everyday job- but I did find time to go get one of the cutest cars ever!  Welcome to my newest family member:

I absolutely LOVE my new car!  It's Cosmic Blue and has a white top with white bonnet stripes.  It was partly the inspiration for my color combination tonight.  LOVE the blue!  When the sun shines on it- it's super sparkly!
