I bought a package of adhesive cork nearly a year ago, and am finally getting around to using it!  I thought it added a nice bit of dimension and texture to this card.  I altered the placement of the strips from the Fab Friday sketch slightly, but like the clean and simple look.  This will be another card for my "It's A Guy Thing" Stamp Club in May.

Here are the products that I used:
Green ice cardstock - from my stash - who knows how long it's been there!
Outdoor Denim cardstock (CTMH)
Sarita background paper (CTMH)
Adhesive Cork Stack (DCWV)
Outdoor Denim and Champagne inks (CTMH)
Set Sail stamp set (SU retired) - ship image
Schooner stamp set (SU retired) - inside image and sentiment
Holiday Tags stamp set (CTMH - D1560) - front sentiment

Check out the Fab Friday challenge blog to see the other great cards made with this sketch.
Thanks for stopping by - and enjoy your week!

Neat idea to use a strip of cork for one of the sketch elements! I think it is a wonderful way to add texture and detail to a more masculine card. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
