Summer Sail Boat

Our new challenge at High Hopes is ...
Play along with your High Hopes stamps to win a new one of your choice - water could be a lake, ocean, rain, bath, etc. 

I must confess that I completely forgot what the challenge was when I was making this card and didn't add any actual 'water', I was so engrossed in what I was doing.
But, hey, you don't know that, so I'll just say that I've used these pale blue, lilac and navy panels to symbolise the sea and sky and my stitching is the foam on the waves.
Do you think I got away with that?

My image is Summer Sail Boat - coloured with pencils and popped up on dimensionals.

Oh and my regular buddies will notice that there's no dirty splodges on my card.  Yes the birthday fairy delivered a swanky new camera for me to play with.  Yippee :)
