MOJO Week 86- 2nd Card & Colour Create Challenge

I thought about this layout all day and came up with a new card tonight. My friend is having a baby and I wanted to make a card for her and her new little boy!

This card is also made for the Colour Create Challenge to use green and blue.

I do not own the Nursery Set from SU! But I LOVE it!! I wanted to make a little sailboat so I made the sailboat by using my 1 3/8" square punch, then I cut the square diagonally into 2 triangles. I cut one triangle smaller and then used half of a scallop punch circle to make the base of the boat. I am sure someone else has done this kind of sailboat before but I was excited to have come up with the idea tonight!!! LOL!
The DSP is Basic Grey. I was originally going to save it for Father's Day cards but loved the look of it with the baby theme.
The stars are created from a star punch I have and then I added some green buttons. The oval with the sentiment is from my Basic George cricut cartridge.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Happy Stamping!
