Freshly Made Sketches #21

Hi! I have been meaning to play along with Freshly Made Sketches for ages now, but never seemed to find the time. But this morning I needed to make a baby boy card to send off to some friends and this sketch was just the inspiration I needed! So here's the sketch:

 And here's what I came up with: (sorry about the photo's - I just couldn't seem to get a good one)

I used white, not quite navy and bashful blue for my colours. The boat is made from cutting a circle in half and cutting triangle sails to fit. Its hard to see, but I added some polka dot embossing to the end of my 'congratulations' banner for a bit more detail. I really like the result and hopefully my friends will too.
Thanks for looking!
