Nautical thank you!

Today was Hadley's last day of swim lessons for this session & I wanted to give a little gift to her teacher. And when I saw the Embellish challenge this morning a design was quickly formed! I love it when a plan comes together (cue A-team music...).
I had misted this doily with light blue awhile ago, so it was dry & ready to go. I grabbed the PTI out to sea set & stamped the life ring in red, and the thank you from butterfly dreams in a darker blue. A little brown burlap string from May Arts wrapped around a glassine bag finished off the color trend...
Of course, I'm sure the teenage girl was more interested in the yummo chocolate chip cookies than the wrapping, but still....
Here's the story board:
Thanks for stopping by- looooots of time to play in this one (shocking, I'm not sneaking in at the last minute, like usual!!)- so get busy!
