Crafty Gals Monthly Challenge - July 2013

It's the 5th of July so that means it's time for another Crafty Gals Monthly Challenge.  This month we are honoring our Crafty Gal,  Zella.  After perusing her blog, I was inspired by both cards at this post.  It is one of my favorite masuline Stampin Up! sets, Open Sea.  I incorporated parts of both of the cards into mine. I decided to not use a sentiment and send it to Operation Write Home to be used as a general card.

All supplies are Stampin Up! unless noted.

Stamp Set:  Open Sea
Cardstock:  Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
Misc:  Early Expresso Bakers Twine, Retired DSP
