VCMP Challenge #6: Sand & sea colors

The challenge is to use blues and tans; I realize I don't have any nautical images (I predict a shopping trip) so I focused on the colors for this masculine card:
Vintage Postal stamp set from Stamper's Best
Background: SU Crumb Cake ink on tan striped DP (Lost & Found Madison Ave. My Mind's Eye).
Postman: ColorBox Midnight ink.
Navy striped DP and stickers are from Glitz.
Ranger Vintage Photo distress ink/Tim Holtz distress tool
Jeweler's twine (JoAnn's)
OWH Sketch #82.

My sister just called and asked me to meet her at AC Moore; she didn't have to ask me twice! Thanks for stopping by; have a great weekend.

This is great. It could have gone for either this challenge or the vintage as it has a wonderful vintage feel to it. I like the little individual lettering for the sentiment. Great Job, Sherry.

That is super! I love the placement of the post man. It looks like the hand is drawing it. Fun!

Great stamping here on this awesome vintage card! I love how the mailman is such a dark color blue against the distressed background! NJ!

Sherry this is fantastic! The sand and sea name was really about blues and tans so this is perfect. It's so YOU and I love your style! Thanks for joining the party this week!
