Cricut 360 Challenge #5

Good Morning,
As summer is still here and in its hottest time of the year in AZ, I am still wishing I can get out of the state and go somewhere nice and cool! This week over at Cricut 360 is all about TRAVELING! So I was thinking beach or even a cruise...which is how I came up with my new card...
"Bon Voyage" Wouldn't that be nice?
This card is a standard, 5 x 7 card using my Cricut: George Basic Shapes, Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots and Tiny Bubbles. After I finished the card it looked a bit like a baby boy card...lol
I used photoshop to make the circle path...I actually have an older photoshop..so I used a template that I downloaded a quite a while ago from Creating Keepsakes and changed the words....Im so excited I taught myself something new...(im a bit slow still in photoshop) lol
The waves were create by just using scissors and layered...and I just love pop dots! They are super addicting!
Here is a close-up of the boat...ok before you ask...the boat is 1/2 a circle and the sails are squares cut in half....simple!
So I hope you will be inspired by my card this week and come on over to play with us over at Cricut 360! Here is the PRIZE for this week...dont miss your chance to win!
See you there!

Lisa, this is so cute! I love that you made your own little ship using just a few shapes, and your colors are wonderful! Isn't it amazing that we had the same basic idea, but made completely different cards? That's one of the things I love about cardmaking ...
