SOS136 - Wide Open Seas

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Cabin Fever. No, we don't want you to use a cabin in your project. By Cabin Fever we refer to the time of year (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) where the weather is very cold and wet and windy and we are stuck inside, just wishing we could be OUTside. So this week we'd like you to make a card or other project with an outdoors-y theme.

 From my card is obvious I wish I was somewhere on or by the sea - preferably a warm one, with sandy beaches and palm trees :)
Stamps are all from Open Seas set, sentiment is from Bitty Banners set.

Stampin for the weekend -Happy Birthday
Totally Papercrafts - one for the boys
Art Impressions - Trips Ahoy
Charisma Cardz - for the boys
