This Week's Creative Sketch

Hey Everyone - Hope you're doing well this Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by to check out this week's sketch challenge!  Here's the sketch:

And below is my card.  I cut a circle out of a piece of typing paper using a 2-1/2" circle punch and placed it over the stamped image of the sail boat.  Next I sponged Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango inside the circle.  I then stamped the boat again on a scrap piece of white cardstock and then cut out just the sails.  I sponged the water with Pacific Ink and Daffodil Delight.  The saying was created in MDS using Early Espresso ink.  I got the idea for this card from the incredibly talented Mary Brown, and you can see her card HERE.  Below are the details:
