So I started off the the Clean and Simple sketch 255, but I think the card ended up anything BUT clean & simple! 

So here's the original sketch:

I really wanted to use my new Photopolymer stamp set Settin' Sail! I soooo can't let go of summer, and I figured since it's Labor Day weekend, this is my last hurrah to keep summer going!

So here's what I came up with!

It's a bit busy for a CAS card, however! But I did pretty much keep to the sketch.  
The paper is from the Venetian Romance DSP Pack! I thought it kinda looked like water! I love the versatility of this DSP pack! Not only are the colors & designs amazing, but they're also very diverse! Just interesting to look at-like I'd want to use it to wallpaper a room!!!

To compliment the Settin' Sail stamp set, I pulled out the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set! It's supposed to look like water was splashed on there! I think it kinda does! 

The colors are Real Red & Island Indigo. Nautical, right? That lighthouse is so neat! It's one of my favorite things to look at when I go to the ocean! The New England coast is full of historic lighthouses. One of my favorite is Nubble Light in York Beach, Maine. I grew up not far from Nobska Lighthouse in Falmouth, MA!

So when I saw this stamp set, it was a must have for me!!! I thin it would've been a little more clear if I'd used the ink pad instead of the  
Stampin' Write Markers, but I wanted it to be two-toned! Works for me!

So just a summer share for today! I'm afraid you may be seeing summer stuff in December! It's just way too short for me!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!
