Papertrey Ink's July 25th All Day Blog

I'm playing along with the Papertrey Ink July 25, 2017 All Day Blog and hoping this fits the parameters. I wanted to send a note to our property management who is so responsive and delightful and this card went in its own direction.   I was having camera issues and the wave is really bluer than it shows, but here goes. 
To create this A2 card, I embossed the white cardstock panel with a sunray die, watercolored the wave with a mix of blues and greens, watercolored the little sailboat.  To be honest, I goofed up the center of the sun and since I had already adhered everything, I die cut a new center circle for the sun...not thrilled with it, but I liked the rest of it so much I just went with it.  I white embossed the sentiment - fussy-cutting the 'afloat' and adhering it on an angle.  The materials used are listed below and thank you for reading! 
Materials Used
  • Papertrey Ink, Waves Mini Set
  • My Favorite Things, Sun Ray Die, Wonky Rectangle Die, Radial Stitched Circle
  • Mission Gold Watercolors
  • Ranger White Detailed Embossing Powder
