Stampin' Up!'s The Open Sea Stamp Set....

Today's card is made using Stampin' Up!'s The Open Sea stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog.  I was inspired by a card made by Sandi MacIver but ended up changing it a bit. 
Here's what you need to make this card:
Soft Suede, Red Riding Hood, Crumb Cake & Very Vanilla cardstock
Soft Suede, Night of Navy & Crumb Cake classic ink
The Open Sea & Sincere Salutations stamp sets
Baker's Twine from summer mini
Gold brads
Crystal Effects
Heat Gun
Night of Navy ribbon
Cutter Kit & sponge for distressing

I thought that I would finish the inside of the card as well - keeping with the nautical theme.  I think it really sets off the card.  The globe on the front of the card was covered with Crystal Effects and then I took a heat gun to it.  After a bit, it began to bubble and that's when I stopped.  It really gave it an aged effect.
