The Paper Variety Challenge 48: Travel or Transportation theme

This week's Paper Variety challenge was to create a paper project using a travel or transportation theme.  Now that I have a cleaned up (at least usable) craft room, I knew that I had paper and that I had stamps to fit both.  I looked at my options and decided to go with my Stampin Up! set called The Open Sea.

I purchased this set because I wanted the ship ledger (on the tag) - I've used it a couple of times as background, but I hadn't yet used the other pieces of the set.

Anyway, here is my submission for the challenge.

I had some fun stitching (as always), and I used paper and ribbon that hadn't been touched in awhile.  Yay for using my supplies!

I do need to thank Splitcoast Stampers for my source of inspiration.  This is the card I modeled mine after.

I think her card was so clever and the scale of items is much better than my version.  I love the background paper on here and probably would have stitched the piercings because any excuse to stitch makes me happy.  I'll have to try and replicate her card one day, but for now, I'm pretty happy with my version.
